SUITA, Japan (AP) - Asian champion Jeonbuk Motors thrashed African side Mamelodi Sundowns 4-1 to claim fifth place in the Club World Cup on Wednesday.

Kim Bo-kyung scored his second goal of the tournament in the first half and Lee Jong-ho, playing in his last game for Jeonbuk, doubled the advantage 10 minutes later.

Jeonbuk went into the break 3-0 ahead when Jang Yun-ho’s low cross was turned into the net by Sundowns defender Ricardo Nascimento.

Sundowns pulled one back three minutes into the second half when Percy Tau found the top corner with a left-footed strike, and Kim Shin-wook’s header off a corner kick at the end sealed the win.

Before the match, Lee and teammates Kim Chang-soo and Choi Kyu-baek were traded to Ulsan Hyundai.
