Path Ahead of the World Cup

Korea DPR qualified through a tricky Asia B qualifying group on goal difference. Their finishing place was not decided until the day of the last fixture of the group, in which they needed not only to avoid defeat in a match against Saudi Arabia, but also rely on Iran not winning in a match against South Korea. In the end, after possessing the same amount of points as Saudi Arabia, Korea DPR qualified through goal difference.
