Mamelodi Sundowns saw their debut appearance at the FIFA Club World Cup come to a rather disappointing end as they suffered a humiliating 4-1 defeat to Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors in Osaka on Wednesday.

Eager to bounce back from defeat to Kashima Antlers, the Brazilians geed themselves up for a tough clash against the Asian champions.

From the onset, though, the 2016 Caf Champions League holders were under the pump, with Kim Bo-Kyung giving the Koreans a deserved lead on 18 minutes. The forward finding the back of the net for the second game in succession, having also scored in their loss to Club America.

Jeonbuk doubled their lead in the 29th minute through Lee Jong-Ho who guided home an exquisite free-kick before Ricardo Nascimento directed the ball into the back of his own net four minutes before the interval. Sundowns 3-0 down at the break.

Pitso Mosimane's men finally rekindled their scoring touch in the 48th minute as Percy Tau hammered home South Africa's first goal at the world showpiece.

Tau received the ball on the right flank, skipped past his marker before steering a left-footed shot into the back of the net.

Kim Shin-Wook restored the Koreans lead in the 90th minute as the 'Green Warriors' secured a fifth-place finish in Japan. (
