    Korea faces off against Lebanon on Thursday in the final round of Asian qualifiers for the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

    The national squad arrived in Lebanon on Wednesday morning after their flight was delayed for around six hours due to heavy snow in Turkey, where the squad had been training.

    Thursday's match is the seventh out of 10 in the final round. Korea will face Syria in Dubai on Feb. 1 in the eighth match.

    Korea is ranked second in its group with four wins and two draws, after Iran with five wins and one draw. The UAE is third with one win, three draws and two losses.

    The top two teams in each group will qualify.

    Korea is highly likely to secure a spot at the World Cup if it wins one of the two matches.
