Here are all of today’s results and stand-out statistics.


Myanmar 4-3 Tajikistan

Maldives 1-2 Philippines

  • Two goals in 16 second-half minutes secure the Philippines a key victory over Maldives, taking the visitors on to seven points in Group A.

Turkmenistan 3-1 Korea DPR

  • Turkmenistan register a surprisingly comfortable win over Korea DPR – erstwhile joint-leaders of Group H – and move on to six points, just one point below their beaten visitors.

Kyrgyz Republic 0-2 Japan

  • Japan retain their perfect record thus far. The Samurai Blue have now gone four games without dropping a point or conceding a goal.

Uzbekistan 2-3 Saudi Arabia

  • A stunning late comeback gives Saudi Arabia victory in this vital top-of-the-table clash and sees them leapfrog their hosts to seize top spot in Group D. This was the Saudis’ 70th win in World Cup qualifying.
  • Hong Kong 0-0 Bahrain
  • Stalemate at the Hong Kong Stadium as Bahrain – currently joint-top of Group C – spurn the chance to make ground on rivals Iraq and Iran, who face off shortly.

Malaysia 2-1 Thailand

  • Neighbours Malaysia come from behind to inflict Thailand’s first defeat of the Qatar 2022 qualifying campaign, dealing a heavy blow to the erstwhile Group G leaders’ hopes of progressing.

Lebanon 0-0 Korea Republic

  • The goalless draw in Beirut sees Turkmenistan jump to the top of Group H. Lebanon were playing in their 60th World Cup qualifier in history, while it was Korea Republic’s six consecutive qualifier without conceding a goal, totaling an impressive 556 minutes.

Vietnam 1-0 United Arab Emirates

  • Vietnam go top of Group G following a famous win in Hanoi thanks to Nguyen Tien Linh’s goal right before half-time. This is their third consecutive World Cup qualifying win, which is a record for the nation.

Syria 2-1 China PR

  • A huge win for Group A leaders Syria, who maintained their 100 per cent record by seeing off section rivals China PR. Zhang Linpeng was the Syrians’ unwitting match-winner, putting through his own goal with 14 minutes remaining to leave the Chinese five points adrift of their qualifying rivals.

Afghanistan 1-1 India

  • Seminlen Doungel was India’s injury-time hero, scoring a 93rd-minute leveller to snatch a point against Afghanistan when a costly defeat in Group E looked inevitable. The Indians’ winless run in World Cup qualifying now stretches to six matches though.

Iraq IR 2-1 Iran

  • A stunning victory for Iraq, who scored in the 92nd minute through Alaa Abbas to move four points clear of their old rivals at the top of Group C. This was Iran’s second successive World Cup qualifying defeat – a fate that has befallen them only twice before (in 1974 and 1998).

Yemen 1-0 Palestine

  • Yemen ended an unwanted streak of five World Cup qualifiers without a win by edging Palestine, playing in their 30th World Cup qualifying match, 1-0 in Al Muharraq. Omar Abdullah Al-Dahi scored the winning goal in the 54th minute to help his side leapfrog their opponents into third place in Group D.

Oman 4-1 Bangladesh

  • Oman won the first World Cup qualifier played between the two sides. The comfortable win sees them go one point behind Qatar at the summit of Group E. For Bangladesh, they have now gone five World Cup qualifiers without a win.

Kuwait 9-0 Chinese Taipei

  • Kuwait win convincingly in Kuwait City in what was their 50th victory in 97 World Cup qualifying matches. The result also equals their biggest-ever win in World Cup qualifying history (10-1 v Macau in 1993 and 9-0 v Myanmar in 2015).

Jordan 0-1 Australia

  • Australia win in Jordan in World Cup qualifying for the first time, following two previous defeats. The victory sees them stay perfect with four wins from four at the top of Group B.
