The Western Sydney Wanderers have gone down to K-League glamour club FC Seoul on Tuesday night at the Campbelltown stadium in Sydney.

Despite being up three nil at one point, the visitors survived a spirited comeback from Wanderers, which saw the match finish 3-2.

To open the scoring, FC Seoul's midfielder, Lee Seok-Hyun, delivered a stunning strike outside the box just 4 minutes into the game.

Montenegrin international star striker Dejan Damjanovic then put two goals away, sealing a penalty in the 42nd minute, and beating the keeper at the near post from the edge of the box in the 71st minute.

But Wanderer attacking midfielder Terry Antonis was able to get on the end of some good lead-up play to lift the spirits of home fans in the 77th minute.

Youngster Lachlan Scott, then scored from a header during stoppage time.

The result means the Wanderers will slip to last place in group F and look very likely to not make it through to the next round. Endit
