Skipper Son Heung-min scored a brace and set up the other as South Korea made it two victories from two in 2026 World Cup qualifying with a 3-0 win in China on Tuesday.
Son silenced a sell-out crowd of more than 40 000 in Shenzhen with two goals in the first half, the first a penalty and the second a clever header from a corner just before halftime.
South Korea wrapped the game up in the dying minutes through a bullet header by Jung Seung-hyun – from a Son free-kick – and they top Group C with a perfect six points.
Jurgen Klinsmann's side thumped Singapore 5-0 last week to begin their qualifying campaign in style and they were in much the same mood against an outclassed China.
With attacker Son looking in the groove, the Koreans dominated and were ahead after 11 minutes.
Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Hwang Hee-chan was brought down in the box and Tottenham Hotspur's Son duly stroked home the penalty.
