Ipoh (Malaysia), May 14 (IANS) South Korea set up a fifth-place play-off clash with India after they defeated Britain 3-1 in the Azlan Shah Cup hockey tournament here Saturday.

South Korea and India have seven points from six matches. Both were joint winners after last year’s final was washed out due to heavy rains. The fifth-place play-off match will be held Sunday ahead of the final tie.

South Korea took the lead in the 10th minute after Yoon Sung-Hoon sounded the board from Jeon Byung-Jin’s precise pass. Ten minutes later, Britain equalised from a penalty corner converted by Matthew Daly.

Within three minutes, South Korea again nosed ahead when Jeon made a solo run down the left flank and flicked it past the onrushing goalkeeper. You Hyo-Sik converted a penalty corner in the 41st minute to make it 3-1.
