    It would be a surprise upset if Kuwait could do anything more than draw South Korea, but it would be interesting if South Korea was knocked out.

    I'll be stunned if South Korea was not part of the 2014 automatic qualifying teams from Asia.

    Seeing South Korea lose 2-1 to Lebanon in the second meeting after blowing them out of the water the first time 6-0 was shocking.

    The South Koreans have more talent than Kuwait, but if they lose to Kuwait at home and see Lebanon get a result against United Arab Emirates, I'm interested in this latest Korean drama, this time with their own national football/soccer team.

    2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying - Asia (AFC)

    AFC Third Round

    Group Stage

    Matchday 3 FT Scores: February 29, 2012

    From FIFA.com

    Group A

    Group B
    2002 Top 4 finisher South Korea averted disaster of not making into the AFC Fourth Round with a 2-0 victory over Kuwait in Seoul.

    The Taegeuk Warriors win Group B.

    Former Middlesbrough striker Lee Dong-Gook opened the scoring in the 67th minute and former Gambo Osaka forward Lee Keun-Ho sealed the win four minutes later.

    Lebanon took second place in Group B despite losing 4-2 to the United Arab Emirates.

    Japan 0-1 Uzbekistan

    Group D
    Australia not only rubberstamped their Group D victory, they also eliminated former 1994 Round of 16 team and three-time AFC Asian Cup winners Saudi Arabia 4-2 in Melbourne's AAMI Park.

    Frank Rijkaard's Green Falcons blew two leads in the first half.

    Salem Al-Dossari gave Saudi Arabia a 1-0 lead after 19 minutes before former Brisbane Roar and Sydney FC and current Shimizu S-Pulse forward Alex Brosque scored his first of two in the 43rd minute for the Socceroos.

    There was more heartbreak for Bahrain.

    After falling at the last hurdle twice in the 2006 and 2010 Inter-confederation playoffs, Bahrain are not going to the AFC Fourth Round of Qualifying.

    Former England caretaking manager and former Crystal Palace and Tottenham Hotspur winger Peter Taylor saw Bahrain did part 1 of the bargain vaporizing Indonesia 10-0 in Riffa.

    Mohammed Al Tayeb and Sayed Ebrahim each bagged trebles while Ismail Abdul-Latif and Mahmood Abdulrahman added braces for the Bahrainis.

    However, 2022 hosts Qatar ended Bahrain's journey by getting a point in Tehran against 1998 finalists Iran in a 2-2 draw.

    Wolfsburg Ashkan Dejagah gave Iran a 1-0 lead in the 4th minute, but Al-Sadd playmaker Khalfan Ibrahim made it 1-1 from the penalty spot five minutes later.

    It looked like Bahrain was going to the next round after Dejagah scored his second in the 50th minute to give Iran a 2-1 lead, but with four minutes to go, Al-Sadd central defender Mohammed Kasola scored the equalizer to give Qatar a much needed point and moved on to the AFC Fourth Round by a single point over Bahrain.

    Bahrain 10-0 Indonesia

    Iran 2-2 Qatar
