Uzbekistan 2-3 South Korea – Match Highlights

Ji Dong-won’s double sealed South Korea’s place at the 2015 Asian Cup with an entertaining victory over Uzbekistan at Al Sadd Stadium.

With the top three teams in Qatar all automatically qualifying for the next edition in Australia in four years time, there was plenty to play for in the third-place play-off and Korea raced into a three-goal lead after 38 minutes.

Alexander Geynrikh then struck either side of the break to give Uzbekistan hope of a fightback but they were unable to craft the equaliser they needed to force extra time as Korea equalled their performance from four years ago when they beat Japan on penalties.
