2014 FIFA World Cup - qualification

N. Korea down bitter rivals Japan in W.Cup qualifier

TOKYO — North Korea downed bitter rivals Japan 1-0 on Tuesday in a bad-tempered World Cup qualifier dripping with political tensions and littered with yellow cards.

Pak Nam Chol's 50th-minute header avenged North Korea's September defeat in Tokyo and sparked delirious scenes from the packed crowd at Pyongyang's Kim Il Sung Stadium.

But the hosts' first win in qualifying came too late to save their campaign, which was killed off last week by Uzbekistan, while Asian champions Japan were already through to the last round with 10 points from their first three games.

...

Preparations for the game had also proved controversial after just 150 tickets were allocated for Japanese fans, who huddled silently in a corner of the stadium guarded by uniformed military officers.

On Monday, reports said Japan were held up for four hours by a baggage and immigration inspection at a Pyongyang airport while dour officials told players not to laugh and confiscated their bananas, chewing gum and instant noodles.

Although Canada got an extremely favourable draw this is a difficult group, as the top three teams are all equal pretty much.

Honduras just beat Spain. We are not equal to them.

Canada needs to make sure they do not give up points at home. And learn to hold a lead.

Oceania quartet commence long road

Just over two years to the day since New Zealand’s historic qualification for the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™, the long path to the global stage for Oceania nations will commence later today (22 november). American Samoa, Cook Islands, Tonga and host nation Samoa will comprise a quartet of teams in Round 1, with only the winner maintaining their Brazil 2014 ambitions.

Three matches across five days provide little margin for error in the Samoan capital of Apia. The victors shall progress to Round 2, where they will be grouped with Vanuatu, New Caledonia and Tahiti. The other pool will feature Fiji, New Zealand, Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea.

That tournament, to be held next June in Fiji, will double as the 2012 OFC Nations Cup, with qualification for the FIFA Confederations Cup Brazil 2013 therefore in the offing. The four highest teams will also progress to Oceania’s third and final stage of Brazil 2014 qualifying. For now, though, the gaze of four Polynesian nations is very much on the coming week as the world’s greatest football tournament takes a foothold in a remote part of the globe.

American Samoa has created FIFA World Cup™ history by beating Tonga 2-1 at the OFC Stage One qualifiers in Apia, Samoa.

The win is the first at any OFC level for the tiny Pacific Island nation of 60,000 who infamously still hold the record for the heaviest defeat in FIFA World Cup™ history losing 0-31 against Australia in 2001.

Samoa advances to next OFC qualifying round

American Samoa’s captivating run in Oceania’s World Cup qualifying ended Sunday with a 1-0 loss to Samoa on Silao Malo’s last-minute goal.

American Samoa, 204th and last in FIFA rankings, captured world attention when it beat Tonga in its opening match at the four-nation, round-robin tournament, notching its first-ever international win.

Another win Sunday would have seen it advance to the second round of qualifying, and the defense, based around center back Johnny Saelua — thought to be the world’s first transgender international — held strong until the 90th minute when Malo scored on a counterattack.

Wow Qatar is on the verge of being eliminated from the 2014 WC. We'll know in 20 minutes.

Edit: Spoke too early. Qatar ties it up against Iran in the 88th minute. 2-2 now. And Bahrain was doing its part by beating Indonesia 9-0. Qatar would've been out if they lost to Iran, and if Bahrain beat Indonedia by at least 8 goals.
