South Korea claim third spot
South Korea 3 Uzbekistan 2 (January 28)
Two goals from Alexander Geynrikh gave Uzbekistan hope, but South Korea held on to finish 3rd and claim a spot in the 2015 Asian Cup. The Koreans played with flare and seemed to be running away with the match as Koo Ja Cheol broke through on a counter attack in the 17th minute to sweep the ball high past Nesterov before some slick passing around the box in the 28th minute lead to Ji Dong Won slotting the ball past the keeper. Ji Dong Won rose high to head powerfully into the top corner in the 39th minute, but Geynrikh slammed his retaken penalty past Jung Sung Ryong a minute before the break and in the 53rd minute skilfully brought an aerial ball under control, trickled his way towards goal and slid it past the keeper to reduce the deficit and regain Uzbekistan some respect.
