The South Korean men's national football team beat Turkmenistan on Saturday in a 5-nil blowout and that'll keep the Red Devils at the top of their group in World Cup qualification.
At Goyang Stadium just outside Seoul, those goals came from three different South Korean players Hwang Ui-jo who scored two Nam Tae-hee, Kim Young-gwon and Kwon Chang-hoon.
South Korea now has ten points in Group H, the same as Lebanon, but are ahead on goal differential.
They'll play Sri Lanka next on June 13th.
There are still two more rounds to go and then the playoffs before the final Asian teams are determined for the World Cup, which next year will be hosted by Qatar.
