It was a poor night out in international fixtures for Chung-Yong Lee, Sam Ricketts, and Adam Bogdan as none of the three would leave their World Cup 2014 Qualifying matches with less than three points. Chungy would arguably be the happiest of the three with his side rescuing a draw.

Chungy's South Korea side went 1-0 down early to Uzbekistan thanks to an own goal before pulling two back, one on each side of the halftime break. Sanjar Tursunov equalized for Uzbekistan shortly after Korea went ahead. The match ended at 2-2. South Korea are still three points clear at the top of their group, however.

Sam Ricketts' Wales were battered to the tune of 6-1 by a strong Serbian side. The game saw a total of seven different goal scorers with Gareth Bale the only one on target for the Welsh. Ricketts entered the game at the half with Wales already 3-1 down. Wales are bottom of their group after two matches, having not gained a single point.

Adam Bogdan's Hungary team were also battered, this time by the visiting Netherlands 4-1. It was a lot of poor defending in front of the goalkeeper that opened up the holes in front of goal, allowing the Dutch to pick their spots and coast easily past Hungary. Hungary sit on three points in the middle of their group with Romania and the Netherlands above them Turkey below.

Elsewhere, Gregg Wylde was a substitute in Scotland U-21's 3-2 loss to Austria. The Scots were already knocked out the qualifying for their U-21 tournament.
