Sub Ji stars in Korean comeback.

Sunderland striker Ji Dong-won was a late second half substitute as Korea drew with Lebanon in their latest World Cup group game.

The Black Cats star, who has spent the second half of 2012-13 on loan at German side Augsburg, made an impact after entering the game as his side managed to pull a goal back to take a point.

Kim Chi Woo scored in the final minutes of injury time to earn a 1-1 draw, cancelling out Hassan Maatouk’s 12th minute strike.

He saved the White Tigers' blushes with a pin-point free kick to take Korea to the top of their group will 11 points from six games.

Lebanon are now out of contention for the tournament next summer.
