South Korea warmed up for the World Cup with a 2-0 win over Ecuador in Seoul courtesy of second-half strikes from Lee Sung-ryeol and Lee Chung-yong.
Despite fielding a team made up only of domestic-based players, the South Americans proved a hard nut to crack.
Lee Sung-ryeol had been on the pitch less than five minutes when he ran on to a header from Yeom Ki-hun to fire home from the edge of the area with 18 minutes left to play. Bolton winger Lee Chung-yong sealed the win 12 minutes later by shooting home from the edge of the six-yard box.
