Park Chu-Young scored for the fifth time in 2014 FIFA World Cup™ qualifying today as Korea Republic beat United Arab Emirates 2-1.
The South Koreans stay top of Group B with two victories and one draw. Korea Republic captain Park, who also scored both goals in a 2-2 friendly draw with Poland last week, found the net in the 50th minute.
And the home side were gifted a 2-0 lead in the 63rd minute thanks to an own goal from defender Ismail Hamdan, who was hit by a corner kick from Ki Sung-Yueng.
One minute into injury time, Ismaeil Matar scored a consolation but UAE remain at the bottom of Group B after three successive defeats.
