    Background: South Korea beat defending champions, Malaysia, 2-1 to emerge as winners of the final of the 6th King's Cup football tournament in Bangkok, Thailand on Tuesday (25 December).

    South Korea, winners of the Cup for three consecutive years from 1969 to 1971, went on the offensive from the opening whistle. Outside Left Yoo Kun Soo scored South Korea's first goal in the second minute of the first half. South Korea then made it 2-0 in the 13th minute, when Outside Right, Cha Bum Keun, scored with a pass from Centre Forward, Chung Kyu Foong.

    The second half began with rough play by the Malaysian team. South Korea was awarded a series of free kicks, but these were mostly from mid-field and gave South Korea no immediate goal-scoring chances.

    Malaysia settled down to regular play midway in the second half. Behind a combined attack on the South Korean goal in the 35th minute, Malaysia made the score 2-1. Star Centre Forward Mokhtar Dahari scored from 10 yards outside the goalmouth.

    Malaysia kept up a hard attack up to the very end, but the South Korean defence kept the score intact at 2-1.

    Final placings in this year's King's Cup were: 1. South Korea, 2. Malaysia, 3. Thailand, 4. Burma, 5. Khmer Republic, 6. Laos and 7. Singapore.
