Uzbekistan beat Kuwait

With the AFC (Asia) qualifiers coming to a close, Uzbekistan has won the chance to play some more. Going into the match, Kuwait only needed one point to get to the playoff with Bahrain (the winner of that playoff will then play the fourth place CONCACAF team), and for most of the half, it looked good for them. In the 32st minute they went up 2-0. However, Uzbekistan came to life right before the half. Server Djeperov got a goal in the 41st that sparked something. In the 62nd they got an equalizer and in the 76th minute Anvarjon Soliev put home the game winner.

AFC results:
Korea 0 - Saudi Arabia 1
Uzbekistan 3 - Kuwait 2
Japan 2 - Iran 1
Bahrain 2 - Korea DPR 3
