BEIJING - South Korea beat hosts China 2-0 in the Men's East Asian Cup in Wuhan Sunday, with goals from Kim Seung Dae and Lee Jong-Ho.

Few opportunities presented themselves for either team in the first half, until, with just a minute to go, midfielder Kim Seung Dae put South Korea into the lead.

Lee Jong-Ho added the crucial second in the 57th minute.

"South Korea's stamina and willpower limited us. The loss is a warning - we are not well prepared," said China's French coach Alain Perrin, according to state news agency Xinhua.

"We have seen the gap between us and South Korea - we will take the next two games seriously."
