South Korea's consistency paving way in AFC World Cup qualifying

South Korea continued their fine form in 2015 with a slim 1-0 win in Kuwait.
South Korea continued their fine form in 2015 with a slim 1-0 win in Kuwait.

After another round of 2018 World Cup qualification, recent results suggest that Iran might be the continent's top team, according to FIFA's rankings. Or maybe that distinction belongs to continental champions Australia.

Yet when it really comes down to it, overall in 2015, South Korea have been Asia's number one. The Taeguk Warriors, who started the year by reaching the final of the Asian Cup, have been going from strength to strength, as their 1-0 victory in Kuwait on Thursday in a vital qualifier...

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...

The result, in front of a passionate home crowd in Amman, gave Jordan a one point lead over the Socceroos with four games remaining.

Jordan's pace troubled the Asian Cup winners for most of the game and the hosts took the lead two minutes into the second half when Hassan Abdel Fattah blasted a penalty high into...

Chung Mong-joon tight-lipped over England 2018 bid vote promise

Four FIFA sponsors - Coca-Cola, Budweiser, Visa and McDonald's - have called for beleaguered president Sepp Blatter to resign immediately.

Korean billionaire and FIFA presidential hopeful Chung Mong-joon has refused to say whether he promised Prince William over a glass of whisky that he would back England's bid for the 2018 World Cup.

England's bid leaders accused Chung of reneging on his promise after the vote in 2010, and also told FIFA's ethics investigators that the Korean had promised to trade his vote in return for England's FIFA vice-president Geoff Thompson voting for Korea's 2022 bid.

Chung confirmed that he had met Prince...

Struggling Augsburg seek early-season boost at Bayern Munich

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes previews Bayern Munich's match vs. Augsburg, as Augsburg are the only side to defeat Pep Guardiola's side twice.

Augsburg coach Markus Weinzierl and his team face champions Bayern Munich at the weekend as they try to turn around their poor form.

The club, who confounded expectations by finishing fifth in the Bundesliga last season, have lost their first two home games of the season.

Their only point of the campaign so far has come away to Frankfurt, leaving them one place outside the relegation zone in the early-season table.

"We are aware that Augsburg are a small club which has played above its limits in...
