South Korea also qualified for the AFC finals at this level. The group runners-up, Thailand may yet qualify for the finals.
I'm not going to bore with details but the qualification process became somewhat unbalanced as a result of a number of withdrawals and the fact that the host country is yet to be announced.

As tings stand, the following nations have qualified for the finals:
Australia, Bahrain, China, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Japan, North Korea, South Korea,
Singapore, Syria, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Yemen plus Host Country (probably Uzbekistan or Japan,
which would open a door for Thailand or the best 3rd placed team from the six nation groups).

All the qualification results are here.

Very strange set of results:

Code: Select all

South Korea 11 - 0  Taiwan
Taiwan 2 - 1  Thailand
Thailand  1 - 4  South Korea

Taiwan  0 - 12  South Korea
Thailand  9 - 0  Taiwan
South Korea 1 - 4  Thailand

1.South Korea      4 3-0-1 28: 5 +23 9
--------------------------------------
2.Thailand         4 2-0-2 15: 7 +8  6 
3.Taiwan           4 1-0-3  2:33 -31 3


The surprise package of the qualifiers was India (with a win over Saudi Arabia and a draw with Iraq).

Is the coach for this team a Dutch, Korean or something else?

South Korea trash Indonesia 9-0 and are now guaranteed of a place in the second round. Their next match will be against Syria (who also have a 100% record) to decide who will finish first and who will finish second in Group B.

Iran has qualified for the quarters from Group A and will be joined by the winner of Uzbekistan (hosts) and Bahrain, with Uzbekistan holding the better GD.

Australia and Japan will also make sure of QF spots if they win their matches tonight.

Quarter-final time...

S Korea are currently 1-0 up against the hosts, Uzbekistan.

Other results:
Iran 2-0 Syria
Japan 2-0 Saudi Arabia
Australia 2-3 UAE

That Australia result is extremely surprising. To begin with,
Australia were meant to be playing Japan and UAE were eliminated after
a terrible start to the tournament.

UAE started with a 1-1 against Yemen but fielded an illegible player
so Yemen were awarded a 3-0 win. In the second UAE got spanked 6-1 by
Japan. So they were 1:9 in goals after two matches with zero points.
In the last match of the tournament they laboured to a 3-2 win over
Malaysia (Malaysia only made the finals after disqualifications in
their qualification group... they had failed to score a single goal in
the qualifiers yet still made the finals).

Then it turns out Yemen fielded overage players. Malaysia and Japan
were awarded 3-0 wins against Yemen, but not UAE (since they fielded a
suspended player).

The result of this was that UAE were still third in the group and
Malaysia were second and in the quarter-finals (and one match away
from the World Cup) despite the fact that they had lost all their
matches (in the qualifiers and the final round) bar one, a draw .

Someone then (sensibly) decided to give UAE the place in the quarters
(though they were only marginally more deserving) and now, having
beaten Australia they will be going to the u17 World Cup.

Japan, who slipped up against Yemen in the 1st round (very strange
result given how Yemen drew with UAE and Malaysia) were declared the
group winners.

Clear as mud, huh?

Final

Iran 2-1 South Korea
Talebat 38'
Rezaei 62'
........Korean dude 90+3'


So Korea fail to add to their two titles they have at this level. However, this runner-up
spot moves them above four nations (China, S Arabia, Japan and eh... Oman)
to first place on the all-time table.

Bloody hell, time is flying by... it's almost two years since the U17 World Cup was held in Korea. Doesn't seem like that long ago at all :shock:

The World Cup is yet to be played this year, but in Asia the qualification for the next edition has already started (via the Asian Championship).

AFC U-16 Championship 2010 qualification

Asian U-16 Championship 2010

Postby nzfooty » Thu Oct 15, 2009 1:24 am

Hmmm... South Korea are struggling a little in the qualifiers for the Asian U-16 Championship 2010 Finals - which is quite surprising as they usually breezed through this stage.

They already played the two weakest teams in the group, drawing 0 - 0 with Myanmar and beating Cambodia 11 - 0.

However tonight they lost 2 - 1 to North Korea.

Only two teams are guaranteed of going through and they are currently fourth.

They play third placed Vietnam on October 16, and second placed Thailand on October 19.

Most other groups are already decided and the rankings can be seen here.
