Saudi Arabia in 4-0 win against North Korea

Published: Updated:

Saudi Arabia had few problems starting their Asian Cup Group E campaign with a win as Juan Antonio Pizzi’s side handed 10-man North Korea a 4-0 defeat in Dubai.

Hatan Bahbri put the three-times winners in front after 28 minutes when he cut inside from the left to hit a right-footed shot past Ri Myong-guk and Saudi Arabia doubled their lead nine minutes later when Mohammed Al Fatil flicked home Hussain Al Mogahwi’s free kick.

Han Kwang Song was sent off for a second booking a minute before the interval while Salem Al Dawsari put the result beyond doubt 20 minutes from fulltime and Fahad Al Muwallad added a fourth in the 87th minute.
