South Korea leave it late against Saudis

SYDNEY - South Korea scored two late goals to beat Saudi Arabia 2-0 in their World Cup qualifier in Riyadh on Wednesday. In-form striker Lee Keun-ho broke the deadlock in the 77th minute before substitute Park Chu-young sealed victory in stoppage time. South Korea's win lifted the 2002 World Cup semi-finalists to the top of Group B with seven points from three games in the final round of Asian qualifiers. Iran are second on five with North Korea and Saudi Arabia on four and United Arab Emirates on one. The top two progress to the 2010 finals in South Africa and the third-placed team advance to the playoffs.
