The South Korean defender, who made 43 appearances for Celtic, chipped in with an assist as Uli Stielike’s team defeated Uzbekistan in extra time in the Asian Cup quarter finals.

A second-half substitute for Kim Chang-soo, Cha - who wasn’t selected for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil - picked up the ball in his own half, before rolling back the years and scampering down the wing at high speed.
