Asian qualifiers continued today (only continent to do so, other than 2 smaller UEFA games). Japan have practically qualified for the World Cup while Uzbekistan top the table for now despite only earning 2 points in their opening 3 matches. Key away wins have them back in charge to qualify for their 1st World Cup

Group A
Qatar - Lebanon 1:0
Iran - Uzbekistan 0:1

1. Uzbekistan 5 8 +1
2. Korea Rep. 4 7 +5
3. Iran 5 7 0
4. Qatar 5 7 -2
5. Lebanon 5 4 -4

Very tight group but South Korea have a game in hand. Iran are in some trouble as two of their final 3 matches are away from home. I think the advantage for second place is with Uzbekistan

Group B
Oman - Japan 1:2
Iraq - Jordan 1:0

1. Japan 5 13 +11
2. Australia 4 5 0
3. Iraq 5 5 -1
4. Oman 5 5 -3
5. Jordan 5 4 -7

This is a more straight forward group, hard to see anything but a Japan-Australia 1-2 finish. Japan in fact will qualify already in March as long as they beat Jordan away. They would become the first team from qualifiers to qualify
