South Korea set up a fifth-place play-off clash with India after they defeated Britain 3-1 in the Azlan Shah Cup hockey tournament here Saturday.

South Korea and India have seven points from six matches. Both were joint winners after last year's final was washed out due to heavy rains. The fifth-place play-off match will be held Sunday.

South Korea took the lead in the 10th minute after Yoon Sung-Hoon sounded the board. Ten minutes later, Britain equalised through Matthew Daly.

Within three minutes, Korea again nosed ahead when Jeon scored.

You Hyo-Sik converted a penalty corner in the 41st minute to make it 3-1.
