Asian fixtures and results (All matches)
Korea Republic turned on the style in Goyang and defeated Turkmenistan by the biggest margin in the teams’ head-to-head history in World Cup qualifying. Paulo Bento’s side were completely dominant throughout the match, led by superstar talisman Son Heungmin. Bordeaux’s Hwang Uijo scored a brace. His second on the night, and the team’s last, was the most eye-catching. Son’s skill and build-up play combined with his savvy, flicked finish capped off a flawless performance by the Taegeuk Warriors. Earlier in Group H, Lebanon held off a resilient Sri Lankan side 3-2, thanks to Joan Oumari’s brace, to stay level on points with group leaders Korea Republic (10), who have a significant advantage on goal difference.
