Senegal took the lead midway through the second half as Korean defender Kim Young-gwon scored an unfortunate own goal.  

South Korea pressed for an equalizer but Shin Tae-yong’s side conceded a second goal late on as Moussa Konate scored a penalty kick to seal the win for Senegal. 

The result means that South Korea recorded one win, one draw and two losses in their four warm-up matches for the World Cup in Russia.
