Lee Chung-Yong won his 53rd international cap on Wednesday night, as South Korea beat Greece 2-0 in Piraeus.

The Korean's were playing their penultimate friendly game before the start of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in June and they were up against a side who will join them in Brazil this summer.

Greece, who are ranked 12th in the world, are difficult to match on their own turf, but they were well beaten by a side ranked 49 places below them - as goals in each half from Watford's Park Chu-Young and Bayer Leverkusen's Son Heung-Min sealed a well deserved win for Hong Myung-Bo's side.

South Korea's next game will take place on May 25, 2014, when they play host to Tunisia. They begin their World Cup campaign against Russia on June 17.
