On-loan Arsenal striker Chu-Young Park scored the opening goal for South Korea in their 2-0 friendly victory against Greece.

Daniel Pudil made his first appearance for Czech Republic since May 2012 last night, but the wing-back couldn’t make it a winning return.
Arsenal’s Tomas Rosicky put the Czechs ahead only for Hoffenheim’s Tarik Elyounoussi to level the score.
Former Hornet Matej Vydra struck six minutes before the interval and that looked like being the winner. However, Morten Gamst Pedersen found the net with two minutes remaining and the game was drawn.
Ikechi Anya played all but one minute of Scotland’s 1-0 win in Poland. The wing-back was replaced in second half stoppage time by Chris Burke. A goal from Scott Brown sealed victory for the Scots.

Jonathan Bond was an unused substitute as England Under-21s beat Wales Under-21s 1-0. A strike from Nathan Redmond has put the Three Lions on the verge of qualifying for the Euro 2015 play-offs.
