I had a look at South Korea's previous record and this is the first time they have failed to qualify for the 16 nation edition of the Asian u16 Championship. They did fail to qualify for the 2000 edition (ten team) and the 1992 edition (eight team).

Year/ Asian Championship performance / World Cup performance

Code: Select all

2010: -               -
2008: Runner-up       to be played (starts this week)
2006: Quarter-final    Group stage (as hosts)
2004: Quarter-final    -
2002: Winners         Group stage
2000: -               -
1998: 4th place       -
1996: Group stage     -
1994: Group stage     -
1992: -               -
1990: Group stage     -
1988: Group stage     -
1986: Winners         Quarter-finals


Successful national teams:
South Korea has two titles, together with China, Saudi Arabia,
Japan and Oman. SK are ahead of those nations by the virtue of their
2008 runners-up place.

Good recovery from both Timor and Vietnam after the trashing they received in the opening matches.

Japan needed a 87th minute winner.

Even more dramatic end to the Australia v Vietnam match. The AFC match summary shows three Vietnamese players sent-off in stoppage time (plus an Australian player sent-off earlier in the match). The write-up below indicates only two sending-offs (see below). Australia needed two stoppage time goals to win this one (and two of their goals were penalties, the second coming in 10th minute of stoppage time).

Vietnam 1-3 Australia

Tashkent: Australia join Japan in the quarter-finals of the AFC U-16 Championship after claiming a 3-1 win over Vietnam in a drama-filled encounter at Pakhtakor Stadium on Wednesday that saw three players sent off.

Following a quiet first half the game exploded into life after the break with Vietnam opening the scoring in the 48th minute through Nguyen Xuan Nam.

Australia responded less than 10 minutes later when Jesse Makarounas scored his third of the tournament from the penalty spot before the Joeys were reduced to 10 men in the 67th minute when Kwabena Boahene was sent off.

They did not let that setback affect them, however, as skipper Connor Chapman struck in the 90th minute but that goal left the Vietnam players fuming, suspecting the defender was offside and goalkeeper Nguyen Son Hai was sent off for protesting too vocally.

That was not the end of the drama, however, as Nguyen Ha Long was then dismissed for a foul inside the area and Makarounas again converted a penalty to wrap up the win.

The three points means Australia join Japan on six points and the two sides will meet on Friday in a battle for first place in Group C.

Chances were rare in a largely forgettable first and although Australia were dominating possession it was Vietnam who had the most noteworthy chance when Nguyen Van Nui’s shot on the turn was deflected behind for a corner by an Australian defender.

But Jan Versleijen’s side were stunned three minutes into the second half when a Vietnam free-kick was flicked on by Van Nui and the ball fell to the unmarked Xuan Nam six yards from goal, with the midfielder taking one touch before lashing home.

Australia’s response was swift though as Anthony Proia was hauled down by Son Hai in the 57th minute and the referee had no hesitation pointing to the spot and Makarounas scored at the second attempt after the referee had ordered a retake due to an infringement.

The eventful nature of the second half continued as Australia were reduced to 10 men 10 minutes later when Boahene was shown a red card for a reckless challenge on a Vietnam defender.

They refused to let that decision affect them, however, and dominated possession in the closing stages before scoring a second in the first minute of stoppage time as Luke Remington's powerful free-kick into the area was eventually stabbed home by Chapman.

The Vietnam players clearly felt Chapman was offside and after a lengthy spell of disputing the decision the referee decided to show Son Hai the red card.

It got even worse for the 2010 AFF U16 Youth Championship winners when Ha Long was also sent off for a foul inside the box and Makarounas stepped up to convert the resulting penalty.

2010 AFC U-16 Championship

again Australia left things left late. Their first goal came in the 82' (making it 1-2) and
they only equalised in the fourth minute of injury time, sending the match to extra-time.

Quarter-finals
Australia 3 – 2 United Arab Emirates (aet)
Uzbekistan 2 – 1 Syria
Iraq 1 – 3 Japan
North Korea 4 - 0 Jordan


Australia, Uzbekistan, Japan and North Korea have qualified for the

Re: Asian U-16 Championship

Postby nzfooty » Mon Nov 08, 2010 6:55 am

Final
Nov 7, Pakhtakor Stadium, Tashkent
Uzbekistan 0-2 North Korea

That's North Korea's first title at the U-16 level. Good year for North Korea's youth teams as
the u-19s have also won the Asian Championship couple weeks ago. Can their Olympic team win the Asian Games as well?

DPR Korea win AFC U-16 Championship

Tashkent: DPR Korea were crowned AFC U-16 Championship winners for the first time in history on Sunday after claiming a hard-fought 2-0 victory over 10-man Uzbekistan.

Backed by a capacity crowd at Pakhtakor Stadium the hosts were dominant from the outset and the DPR Korea defence were given their toughest test yet during the opening exchanges.

However, a straight red card after 30 minutes for Sardo Rakhmanov took the wind out of Uzbekistan’s sails and as the game wore on the balance of play began to swing in favour of the visitors.

It looked though as if the game would go to extra time only for late strikes from Ri Kwang-il and Jo Kwang to hand DPR Korea the trophy, the East Asian nation’s second youth title in less than a month following their under 19s success in China.

With the home fans in full voice, a nervous DPR Korea defence were looking somewhat shaky early in the game and gave away an early foul on the right side of the area. Timur Khakimov curled an effort towards goal that the visitors struggled to clear before Sardor Rakhmanov’s miss-hit shot went high and wide.

The crowd were celebrating in the 13th minute when Abbosbek Makhstaliev swept home but the goal was scrubbed out with the linesman having immediately raised his flag for offside.

Uzbekistan continued to threaten as Makhstaliev drilled a low free-kick that struck the bottom of the DPR Korea wall and fell at the feet of Muhammadjon Abdullaev, whose shot on the turn hit a defender before being cleared.

But the hosts were dealt a blow on the half hour when Rakhmanov was shown a straight red card after the defender leapt in feet first to challenge Jong Il-hyok.

Despite the man advantage DPR Korea were still yet to really threaten Ganisher Kholmurodov in the Uzbekistan goal and Jong fired high over the bar in the last effort of note for either side before the break.

Uzbekistan came out strong after the restart but DPR Korea had a good chance in the 55th minute when a mistake by Kholmurodov presented a chance for Kang Nam-gwon but the midfielder struggled to control the ball and sent his shot wide.

Ri Ji-song drove a low shot from the edge of the area straight at Kholmurodov 10 minutes later but the North Koreans were getting closer as Pak Myong-song stabbed a shot against the post after a free-kick had evaded almost everyone inside the area.

And their pressure eventually told when Khakimov was caught in possession just inside Uzbekistan’s half in the 74th minute and DPR Korea broke forward before Jo Kwang played a pass across the face of goal that presented fellow substitute Ri Kwang-il with a relatively simple finish from close range.

The game was then put beyond the hosts with five minutes remaining when the persistence of Ri Ji-song allowed Jang Ok-chol to have space down the left and his smart low cross was turned home at Kholmurodov’s near post by Jo Kwang


President’s praise for DPR Korea

Tashkent: AFC President Mohamed Bin Hammam congratulated DPR Korea for their AFC U-16 Championship title win and commended the football authorities in the East Asian nation for their development of youth football.

DPR Korea defeated tournament hosts Uzbekistan 2-0 in Sunday’s final at Pakhtakor Stadium as the North Koreans won their first ever AFC U-16 Championship title, to make it a youth double following the under 19s triumph in China last month.

“Again we have witnessed another thrilling match in the final of an AFC youth competition,” said Bin Hammam, pictured presenting the winners’ medals to the North Koreans.

“The level of performance is becoming better and better and this is a great indication for the future of Asian football.”

“I want to congratulate DPR Korea for this win and add that Uzbekistan have performed very well throughout the tournament. They were worthy of reaching the final today.

“DPR Korea has again proved that they are taking the development of youth teams very seriously, as they are becoming regular contenders for the titles of these championships.”

The AFC President also expressed his delight with at the turnout for the tournament, with the championship registering more than 220,000 spectators in 31 matches to set the highest attendance numbers in the history of the AFC U-16 Championship.

“The spectators added more excitement for the final match, as the Uzbek people showed once again their passion for football”.

“The public interest in the youth championships is growing and this is a good indication of how everyone now believes in the importance of these tournaments for the development of Asian football.”

Asia’s top four youth teams will now get the chance to measure themselves against the best under 17s from around the world at next’s years World Cup, prompting the AFC President to add:

“We wish the best of luck for Asia’s representatives when Uzbekistan, DPR Korea, Japan and Australia take part in the FIFA U-17 World Cup next year in Mexico."
