Marcello Lippi was unable to inspire China to a win in his first game in charge as they were held to a 0-0 draw by Qatar in a AFC World Cup qualifier in Kunming on Tuesday evening.

The hosts are bottom of Group A in the final round of qualification for the 2018 World Cup with just one point from the first four games, and the result almost certainly ends the slim hopes they had of finishing in the top two in the six-team group and progressing automatically to Russia.

Mile Jedinak's penalty rescued Australia from a home 2018 AFC World Cup qualifying defeat, salvaging a 1-1 draw in Melbourne against Japan and keeping the Socceroos on course for Russia 2018.

The Japanese looked set for a smash-and-grab success after Genki Haraguchi's fifth-minute opener until Australia's captain restored parity early in the second half.

Tottenham's Son loves London apart from the food, has many best friends

South Korea winger Son Heung-Min says that he prefers London to Leverkusen, and has made lots of friends since joining Tottenham Hotspur in August last year.

The only downside, he concedes, is finding good food in the English capital.

South Korea fans hope Son Heung-Min's Tottenham form carries over

South Korea striker Son Heung Min
Son returns to international duty after being arguably Tottenham's best player in September.

When an exhausted Son Heung-Min left the White Hart Lane pitch on Sunday in the final seconds of a great performance and a 2-0 win over the previously perfect Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur fans rose to give the in-form South Korean a serious standing ovation.

The reaction back home was just as positive though tinged with concern that 96 hours later, Son, having flown thousands of miles, would be playing just outside Seoul in a crucial 2018 World Cup qualifier against Qatar on Oct. 6. He had...
