South Korea defeated Iraq 2-0 to reach the final of the AFC Asian Cup today.

Forward Lee Jeong-hyeop and defensive back Kim Young-gwon scored a goal apiece in each half to put South Korea on the path to its first Asian Cup title since 1960. South Korea will make its first appearance in the final in 27 years.

The championship final will be Saturday, also in Sydney. The other semifinals showdown will be between Australia and the United Arab Emirates on Tuesday in Newcastle.

The 69th-ranked South Korea and the 114th-ranked Iraq had a cautious start in rainy conditions, before Lee jolted life into the listless match with his second goal of the tournament.
