Men's - Preliminary round 2
(in Taiwan)

Nov 13:
North Korea 2-1 Hong Kong
Taiwan 1-2 Guam

That's pretty stupid scheduling, something the HK coach, Kim Pan-gon (김판곤) complained about.

Nov 16: Guam v North Korea; Taiwan v Hong Kong
Nov 19: Hong Kong v Guam; Taiwan v North Korea

Historic goal not enough as Hong Kong lose to North Korea

...North Korea coach Tong Sop-jo was dissatisfied with his team's performance, but admitted victory was a good start.

Kim Pan-gon should complain less. I could see them losing to Taiwan and they only beat Guam 2-1 last time they played (2013).

HK have a good record against Taiwan, though. Something like 6 wins, 2 draws and 0 losses in the last decade.
Guam are improving though and that win against Taiwan, plus the narrow loss to HK you mentioned seem to demonstrate that.
However, check out their form against HK in the previous four matches: 1-53 in goals! All loses, not surprisingly.

Women's - Preliminary round 2 (in Taiwan):
Hong Kong 0–9 South Korea
Taiwan 4–0 Guam

Thanks to their superior goal difference, South Korea only need a draw in their last match against Taiwan,

Men's - Preliminary round 2
(in Taiwan)

Guam 1–5 North Korea
It was 1-1 with 20 min to go, and only 1-2 in the 85th minute. Nice effort from Guam nevertheless.
By the way, a good article on Sunday, by John Duerden, about the change Guam has gone through.

Extract:
When it comes to football, Guam, a member of the Asian confederation, may not sound like much and until a few years ago they were not, thanks to regular thrashings, such as 21-0 against North Korea in 2005. That followed a 16-0 defeat by Tajikistan in 2000 during the island’s only World Cup qualification campaign to date.

“Guam is an American territory,” said White. “When I first arrived in 2012 and came through immigration to be asked what the purpose of my visit was, I told them proudly that I was the new head coach for the national football team, only to be told that I looked rather small to have played in the NFL...


Hong Kong 1-0 Taiwan

With one round left:
North Korea 6 pts, +5, Hong Kong 3 pts 0, Guam 3 pts -3, Taiwan 0 pts -2

England’s top level may not be the immediate target – a club in Japan, Korea or China would do for now – but it is a medium-term goal.

Already enough Scots coaching in Korea, time to have some English as well. And he sounds like he has a bit of a head on him too. Fining people for calling American football "football", in America. :usa2:

Australia participated in 2013 did they not? Any particular reason they're not involved at all this time around?

Because they're not in East Asia?

Not that geography ever got in the way of these things, but they're not even menbers of EAFF. Anyway, who wants to play the "Qantas Socceroos and Westfield Matildas". Just reading that makes me shudder. At least Qantas have pulled out now because they don't like the competition from FIFA's friend, Emirates. The Aussies joined the South East Asia Football Federation in 2013, so perhaps they'll be doing that in future, although it looks like they said "no thanks" this year.
