In damp conditions, Jeon Se-jin gave South Korea the lead as he tapped home Um Won-sang's 23rd minute cross. The Koreans doubled their lead shortly after the half-hour mark when Jeon curled a delightful free-kick past Qatar goalkeeper Shehab Mamdouh to score his fifth goal of the competition. Um Won-Sang then made it 3-0 to the East Asians just before the break as he shoots from captain Hwang Tae-hyeon's pinpoint delivery past Mamdouh. Qatar pulled one back in the 52nd minute when Lee Jae-ik turned to substitute Abdulla Almurisi's drilled cross into his own net. But the West Asians were down to 10 men in the final minute of play when Nasser Abdulsalam received a second yellow card for a cynical tackle from behind.
