Korea Falls to Qatar in Crucial World Cup Qualifier

Korea Falls to Qatar in Crucial World Cup Qualifier

On the field, Qatar's Hasan Al Haydos scored the victor 16 minutes from time in the win that keeps their hopes alive of a third-place finish in Group A and a shot at the playoffs.

They now stand five points behind third-place Uzbekistan and will need to win both their final games in Group A - and hope Uzbekistan lose both - to stand a chance of qualifying.

Despite the defeat, qualification for Russian Federation is still in South Korea's own hands.

Qatar national team coach Jorge Fossati presented his resignation despite his team's 3-2 win over South Korea in a match held on Tuesday at Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium in Al Sadd in the 8th Asian qualifying round for the 2018 FIFA World Cup to be held in Russian Federation.

"We have to have a scan, it may be broken", said Stielike.

Son's injury will also be a blow to South Korea, who sit in second place in their World Cup qualifying group on 13 points - seven behind leaders Iran and just one above third-placed Uzbekistan. South Korea's hopes to play at the quadrennial event for a ninth consecutive time will remain in limbo until the last of the group matches are played.

Later, the Qatari coach defended his players and stated, "I don't see something that can receive a punishment as it is a t-shirt with a picture of the Emir", he said.

Al-Haydos took the resulting free-kick from 20 yards, scoring with a fine finish before running to the touchline to hold up a T-shirt of the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani to the crowd.

Federation Internationale de Football Association bans any unsanctioned political, religious or commercial messages on shirts.

Afif scored Qatar's second in the 51st minute, but the home side's fragile defence could not stand firm. About half of the current squad are naturalised citizens, including Brazil-born Rodrigo Tabata and Sebastian Soria, who was born in Uruguay.
