UZBEKS SEEK WORLD CUP HISTORY AGAINST S. KOREA

0

SINGAPORE: Uzbekistan have a chance to become the first Central Asian team to reach the World Cup when they take on South Korea on Tuesday, while Australia are up against it as Asian qualifying heads for a tight finish. Three-time Asian champions Iran also have work to do to make progress to next year’s tournament in Brazil, with three automatic spots and two play-off positions still up for grabs in the last two rounds of games. Uzbekistan, a former Soviet Republic, placed fourth at the 2011 Asian Cup and have reached the final round of World Cup qualifying five times. They are now tantalisingly close to appearing on football’s biggest stage.
