    South Korea on Thursday drew 0-0 with Lebanon in Beirut in the second round of Asian qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

    The match was played in an empty stadium due to concerns over Lebanon's ongoing anti-government protests, which have recently turned increasingly violent.

    Despite Thursday's scoreless match, South Korea, which has now passed halfway, wrapping up four matches out of eight in the qualifiers, is still in the lead of the group, which also includes North Korea and Turkmenistan.

    South Korea's next match will be played at home against Turkmenistan in March next year.
