Tim Cahill hat trick sees Australia ease past Bangladesh in AFC WCQ

Cahill has now scored 45 goals in 88 international games since making his Australia debut in 2004.

Australia's record-scorer Tim Cahill grabbed a first half hat trick as the Asian champions eased to a 4-0 victory over Bangladesh in an AFC 2018 World Cup qualifier in Dhaka on Tuesday night.

Cahill took his Socceroos' tally to 45 goals in 88 international matches as he opened the scoring in the sixth minute with a simple header before adding to his account in the 32nd and 38th minutes.

Captain Mile Jedinak grabbed Australia's fourth goal two minutes before half-time before a more resilient defensive...

Philippines' World Cup hopes take another hit with Yemen loss

Thomas Dooley and his players tasted the disappointment of a third World Cup qualifying loss in four games.

The Philippines' hopes of progression to the next round of AFC 2018 World Cup qualifying all but ended Thursday night as they slumped to an embarrassing 1-0 home defeat to Yemen. An 83rd-minute goal from substitute Ahmed Al Sarori condemned the Philippines to their second straight loss.

The home side were punished for their inability to convert chances, and the in-form Ebrahim Ali Ayash performed well in the Yemen goal.

Here are three thoughts from the Manila defeat.

Azkals World Cup progression in serious jeopardy after Bahrain defeat

A 2-0 away loss to Bahrain dampened the mood in the Filipino camp.

Coming off an impressive goalless draw against North Korea in Pyongyang, the Azkals crashed to a disappointing 2-0 away loss against a Bahrain team looking to steer their own campaign back on track.

The Azkals had their chances, with Phil Younghusband and Stephan Schrock particularly active up front, but it would be Bahrain who would take the lead early in the second half.

Challenged for a response, a fatigued Azkals team had no reply as Bahrain avenged its earlier loss in Manila.

Here are three...

North Korea, Qatar win to stay in first place in World Cup qualifying groups

North Korea, Qatar, Thailand and Jordan all won on Tuesday to maintain their group leads in the second round of Asian qualifying for the World Cup.

Jong Il Gwan's 12th-minute penalty gave North Korea a 1-0 win over Yemen in Group H.

The North Koreans opened a four-point lead over Uzbekistan, who have a game in hand.

In the other Group H game, Ismail Abdul-Latif and Sayed Adnan both scored early in the second half to give Bahrain their second win in qualifying, 2-0 at home against the Philippines.

Australia lose in Amman while Kagawa bails Japan out against Syria

Australia were downed 2-0 by Jordan in Amman on Thursday night.

The halfway stage of the second round of qualification for the 2018 World Cup was all about the big boys from East Asia -- Japan, South Korea, China -- and beyond (Australia) travelling significant distances to face mid-level West Asian teams away from home.

Two won and two lost in an exciting night of Asian football. There was little to smile about in Amman for Australia as the men in green and gold lost in their second successive visit. The Socceroos crashed in Jordan in qualification for the...
