So I'm from Lebanon and I always liked these qualifiers to be fair. If you're from an Asian country or follow these this is where to post.
In our group, currently, it's very messy. First, we've 3 games remaining against Sri Lanka 5th of June, Turkmenistan 9th of June, and South Korea 13th of June. What we're aiming for is finishing among the second-place teams and hopefully doing better than the other second-place teams and make it to round 3. Do I expect to make it to the WC? No but round 3 would be good progress.
The reason why our group is messy is because North Korea withdrew and the points got taken off from each team who played vs North Korea, and the rest of the games got canceled. Now I don't know if this is going to come back and bite us for the tiebreaks with the other 2nd places but at least we didn't lose much because they surprised us by beating us and drawing us, despite us beating them 4-1 and 5-0 in the past.
Here are the standings currently:
It's looking good, but beating Turkmenistan would be the key. Pretty confident about Sri, and pretty desperate about South Korea away, (good we drew them at home though)
