Qatar hand South Korea shock defeat; Japan and China waste leads in draws

With AFC WCQ proving to be a tight and tense affair, Jason Dasey and PJ Roberts look at how the Socceroos can advance.
Japan failed to distance themselves atop Group B as Iraq held the Blue Samurai to a 1-1 draw.

Yuya Osako scored eight minutes into the game in Tehran to put the Japanese ahead. But Mahdi's goal for the already-eliminated Iraqis complicates Japan's road to the finals.
