Finally an interesting story from the Asian Cup. Celtic's Ki Sung-Yueng scored a penalty for Korea in their match vs Japan yesterday. Ki began to scratch his face strangely by the corner flag, which has caused many to speculate that he was making a monkey face.

He wanted to show the world," according to Tom Williams.
