FIFA has put 5,000 tickets for two World Cup round-of-16 matches back on sale after South Africa and France were eliminated.

FIFA spokesman Pekka Odriozola says the tickets had been reserved by fans of teams who were knocked out on Tuesday. Fans could reserve team specific tickets to follow a country throughout the tournament.

Around 4,000 seats are being sold for the Uruguay v South Korea match in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.

A further 1,000 tickets are available for Argentina v Mexico in Johannesburg's Soccer City on Sunday.

FIFA has said 97 per cent of seats, not including corporate hospitality places, were sold for the 64 World Cup matches.

Some games still had 10,000 empty seats because ticket-holders did not arrive.
