(Sporting Alert) — Group A leaders South Korea will try and extend its lead in the World Cup Asia fourth round when they take on Qatar on Tuesday.
South Korea are in a three-way tie in the group with seven-points, but victory over Qatar, who are also on seven-points, would see them getting some breathing space, although Uzbekistan are expected to join them with a win over the struggling Lebanon.
Bolton Wanderers midfielder Lee Chung-Yong and Sunderland 21-year-old forward Dong-Won Ji are amongst the starters for the Koreans, which have scored the most goals (9) so far in the qualifiers.
