Korea lost to the UAE on Tuesday in its last match of the final round of Asian qualifiers for the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Qatar slated for November
In the away match in Dubai, Korea allowed a goal to the Middle Eastern country. With Tuesday's 1-0 defeat, Korea, which is grouped with Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria and the UAE, wrapped up the qualifying round with seven wins, one loss and two draws, finishing second in the group behind Iran, which secured eight wins, one loss and one draw.
Although Korea failed to achieve its goal of finishing the qualifying round at the top of the group, it was still the country's best result overall in a qualifying round.
Meanwhile, the draw for the group-stage tournament of the World Cup will take place on Friday in Doha in the host country, just about eight months ahead of the quadrennial event.
