Australia, Japan and South Korea are the main favorites on this tournament, but Uzbekistan is right behind them.
Uzbekistan is a well-organized team, with experienced players like Ignatiy Nesterov (goalkeeper), Anzur Ismailov (defender), Vitaliy Denisov (defender), Server Djeparov (midfielder), Odil Ahmedov (midfielder), Timur Kapadze (midfielder), etc. in the squad and according to many experts, the White Wolves own enough potential at least to repeat their performance from 2011 (fourth place).
North Korea, on the other hand, is in visible decline over the last couple of years and the general opinion is that this team is even weaker, compared with the team, who was eliminated in the group stage in 2011 (0-1-2 0-2).
Uzbekistan won twice in the last two games between these two teams (North Korea – Uzbekistan 0-1 on 11.10.2011 ; Uzbekistan – North Korea 1-0 on 11.11.2011).
08:00 Uzbekistan – North Korea
