Ki captains South Korea to victory
29th March 2017
Ki Sung-Yueng captained South Korea to a narrow 1-0 win over Syria as they stepped up their 2018 World Cup qualification bid.
South Korea bounced back from last week's 1-0 defeat in China with a home win over a determined Syria outfit.
The Swans midfielder featured for the full 90 minutes as the hosts, who struck in the fourth minute, remain second in Group A - four points behind leaders Iran.
Oli McBurnie was also on international duty as he started in Scotland Under-21s' 0-0 draw with Estonia in a friendly.
The striker went close to breaking the deadlock only to be denied by Estonia keeper Andreas Vaikla.
Gylfi Sigurdsson, meanwhile, missed Iceland's friendly win in Ireland while Jefferson Montero was an unused sub as ten-man Ecuador were beaten 2-0 by Colombia in their World Cup qualifier.
