16th November 2016
Swansea City midfielder Ki Sung-Yueng captained South Korea to a dramatic 2-1 win over Uzbekistan on Tuesday in their Asian qualifying section for the 2018 World Cup.
Ki played the full 90 minutes as his country came from a goal behind to move above Uzbekistan and into second place in their group.
Despite trailing at half-time, South Korea levelled just past the hour mark before netting a winner with five minutes to go at the Seoul World Cup Stadium.
Goalkeeper Mark Birighitti, meanwhile, was an unused substitute as Australia drew 2-2 in Thailand as they remain in third place in Group B of the Asian qualifying stage.
Gylfi Sigurdsson was not included in Iceland's squad for the 2-0 friendly win in Malta.
At under-19 level, three young Swans helped Wales to a 6-2 victory over Luxembourg.
Liam Cullen started while Aaron Lewis and Jack Evans came off the bench as Wales claimed victory despite trailing 1-0 and 2-1. Fellow Swans youngster Kieran Evans was an unused sub.
