Jordan 0-1 South Korea: Park on the spot

AMMAN, June 7 (Reuters) - South Korea maintained their slender group lead in Asian World Cup qualifying on Saturdaywith a 1-0 win over Jordan.

Park Chu-young's 22nd-minute penalty was enough to secure

all three points for the 2002 World Cup semi-finalists, who are

ahead of foes North Korea in Group 3 on goal difference.

South Korea's win made amends for their 2-2 draw with the

unfancied Jordanians in Seoul on Monday. They are bidding for a

place at their seventh successive World Cup finals.

North Korea beat Turkmenistan 1-0 in Pyongyang in an earlier

match. The top two teams progress to round four.
