South Korea scored in the midst of the second half, but gave up an equalizer with just minutes to go. But Korea pulled ahead in what appeared to be the 89th minute, and then scored a third during the five minutes of stoppage time.

That's South Korea qualified for the 2016 Summer Olympics in men's football. :smt111

Yes, joined by Japan who also won thanks to a late goal: Japan 2–1 Iraq.
Third team to qualify will come from winner of Qatar v Iraq

Just looking at the qualified teams and on top of Fiji in the men's tournament, another team making their first appearance will be Zimbabwe in the women's tournament after a qualification of an away goals win, a walkover and an away goals win.

Japan won in a super comeback after being 2-0 down early in the second half to win 3-2 over Korea.

I went to bed at halftime (1am here) with Korea 1-0 up and very doninant having also had 2 goals (rightly) ruled offside. I didnt think Japan had much of a chance so I am guessing Korea just cracked under the pressure.

Small blessing is at least this one wont be replayed on TV over and over again. You can still see Korea's olympic victory over Japan weekly on one of the sports channels used to fill in the quiet time when nothing else is on.
