Qatar football team faces FIFA sanction for Emir shirt

South Korea head coach Uli Stielike leaves the field after losing to Qatar 3-2 in the teams&apos World Cup qualifying match at Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium in Doha

Tottenham attacker Son Heung-min has suffered a broken arm injury while playing for South Korea in a World Cup qualifier against Qatar on Tuesday.

Goals from South Korea's Ki Sung-Yueng and Hwang Hee-Chan in the 62nd and 69th minute seemed to have secured South Korea a valuable point in their attempt to get to Russian Federation, but fine work from Brazilian-born Rodrigo Tabata set up Al-Haydos for a 74th-minute victor.

He also has 17 in 54 matches for South Korea, who face a scrap to qualify automatically from Group A for the World Cup next year.

There is not yet a timescale on Son's injury, but he should be fit for South Korea's crucial double header against Iran, who have already qualified, and Uzbekistan in late August and early September, although he is doubt for the start of Spurs' preseason, which begins in early July.

"We are the players representing the country", Lee Keun-ho said after the match. Korea has now lost three of the group qualification matches and remains winless in away games.

The Uruguayan's decision to quit after less than a year in charge took the Qatar Football Association by surprise and its president said he wanted to discuss the matter with the coach before accepting the resignation.




South Korea have played at the last eight World Cup finals, reaching the semi-finals on home soil in 2002, but they returned home from Brazil without a win in 2014.

Asked if he would consider his position, the German said it was not up to him.

With that, the KFA will have a meeting with its technical committee at National Training Center in Paju today.

Japan missed the chance to take a three-point cushion at the top of Group B, ahead of its final games against Saudi Arabia and Australia which are both just one point back. Earlier in the day, Japan seemed to be cruising to victory in neutral Tehran after Yuya Osako's first-half goal, before the 164cm (5ft 4in) Mahdi Kamil poached the equaliser for Iraq on 73 minutes.

Only the top two from the two six-team groups automatically qualify for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

In Group A, South Korea has work to do to reach a ninth successive World Cup after losing in Doha.
