Korea Republic see off Ecuador

Korea Republic warmed up for the FIFA 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.

Yeom Ki-hun almost broke the deadlock after 37 minutes but the Suwon Bluewings star headed Lee Dong-Guk's cross against the crossbar. Lee Dong-Guk went close on the hour as his low shot looked destined for the bottom corner before a diving save from Marcela Elizaga kept his team level.
