South Korea face Uzbekistan in crucial World Cup qualifier

Korea advances to World Cup after playing Uzbekistan to 0-0 draw

In the standing table of World Cup Qualifying AFC Group A, South Korea is in the second place with 14 points whereas Uzbekistan is in the fourth place with 12 points.

Australia will now play Syria on October 5 and October 10, with the order of the legs and the venues they will be played in yet to be confirmed. Iran plays very reliably - for nine bouts not missed a single goal, but scored only eight.

Because of the current conflict besieging the nation, Syria have been playing their home games in Malaysia - a shorter trip for Australia than both Uzbekistan and South Korea.

But a point ultimately proved enough for Shin Tae-yong - taking charge of just his second match - to lead his side to Russian Federation. As the nation descended into conflict, sports stadiums were trashed and numerous national team's players moved to Arab or Asian countries to play. Associated Press reported that while the national team is made up of government-approved supporters, at least one player - striker Firas al-Khatib - was an opposition activist during a period of exile.

AUSTRALIA has been condemned to the World Cup playoffs after Saudi Arabia defeated Japan 1-0 in Jeddah this morning. I can see that Asian football is getting stronger.

"I won't be pushed into the shadows of Australian football history like others".

"We're in a hard situation, but we'll beef up our mental strength and will win", said Shin, whose side failed to create a single shot on target against Iran despite the visitors playing the last 40 minutes with 10 men.

Saudi Arabia had the fortune of facing Japan after the Samurai Blue had clinched qualification by beating Australia 2-0 on Thursday.

To make the World Cup, the victor will then have to beat a team from the CONCACAF confederation covering North and Central America, and the Caribbean.

Japan, who qualified with last week's 2-0 win over Australia, had nothing left to play for but often looked the better side and had two certain goals cleared off the line before Al-Muwallad's opener.

Syria also managed to beat China by a whole point, with Qatar finishing rock-bottom of the group.

Syria started on the front foot and their early dominance was rewarded with a goal, as Tamer Haj Mohamad bundled in the rebound after Omar Al Somah's free-kick was initially saved.

But on the stroke of half-time, Sardar Azmoun headed Iran level before giving them a second-half lead.

One of the greatest footballing runs in recent memory goes on.
