Australia were their own enemies there, losing the ball after committing too many players forward and allowing Korea to spring on the break.
Son Heung-min chewed up the grass within seconds, with two team-mates fanning out down his left.
Keanu Baccus tries to keep up, even trying to grab the back of the Tottenham forward’s shirt, but to no avail.
Son threads through for Hee-Chan, but the Wolves winger takes a terrible touch that snaps his momentum, giving the Socceroos time to scramble back and get in the way.
The shot comes eventually, zipping behind Australia’s defenders and across Mat Ryan’s six-yard line, with a red shirt ready at the back pots for the tap-in, but Aziz Behich makes a miraculous last-ditch clearance.
