Asian World Cup Qualification Group A: South Korea 1-0 Uzbekistan

Kang-Hee Choi’s South Korea team took a massive step towards World Cup 2014 qualification with a 1-0 win against their closest rivals Uzbekistan at home in Seoul. It was a close contest and only an own goal just before half time from Bunyodkor midfielder Akmal Shorakhmedov separated the two teams. The win opens up a three point advantage for the Koreans over the Uzbeks at the top of the group with only one game to go, although Iran, a point further back in third place, have a game in hand and could also still win the group.

The final round of matches next week (18-06-2013) sees South Korea take on Iran in another crunch match in Ulsan whilst Uzbekistan host Qatar in Tashkent. The top two in the table qualify automatically for next summer’s tournament in Brazil with the third placed team going into a play-off.


South Korea: Sung-Ryong Jung, Chang-Soo Kim, Tae-Hwi Kwak (Ki-Hee Kim 81), Young-Gwon Kim, Chi-Woo Kim, Chung-Yong Lee (Dong-Won Ji 90+3), Jong-Woo Park, Myeong-Ju Lee, Keun-Ho Lee (Dong-Gook Lee 64), Shin-Wook Kim, Heung-Min Son

Uzbekistan: Nesterov, Ismailov, Denisov, Tuhtahujaev, Haydarov, Djeparov, Kapadze, Akhmedov, Shorakhmedov (Tursunov 76), Gadoev, Bakayev (Geynrikh 75) (Tadjiyev 85)

The Group A table is now as follows ahead of today’s second game, which is between Iran and Lebanon at the Azadi Stadium in Tehran:

Group A P W D L F A P
South Korea 7 4 2 1 13 6 14
Uzbekistan 7 3 2 2 6 5 11
Iran 6 3 1 2 3 2 10
