Two goals from Ji Dong-won helped South Korea beat Uzbekistan 3-2 Friday to claim third place in the Asian Cup and automatic qualification for the 2015 tournament.
The Koreans took the lead when Lee Yong-rae sent a low ball to Koo Ja-cheol, who scored in the 17th minute. They made it 2-0 in the 28th when Koo found Ji Dong-won in the area and he scored. Ji then took a cross from Hong Jeong-ho in the 39th minute and powered a header over keeper Ignatiy Nesterov for his second.
The Uzbeks launched a brief comeback, earning a dubious penalty in the 45th minute that striker Alexander Geynrikh scored. Geynrikh added a second in the 53rd minute, taking a pass just outside the area and darting into the box before beating goalkeeper Jung Sungryong.
