    Iran put one foot in the final round of 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ qualifying with an emphatic 4-1 win over Indonesia in Jakarta today.

    Iran dominated from the kick-off, testing Indonesia's keeper in the first minute and putting away their first goal in just the seventh courtesy of a sturdy strike from Milad Meydavoodi.

    The Indonesians were already eliminated, and Iran capitalised on some sloppy passing as they bagged two more in four first-half minutes through midfielder Mojtaba Jabbari and striker Gholamreza Rezaei.

    Indonesia felt a slither of hope in the 44th minute, when Bambang Pamungkas headed into the net past Iran's 'keeper Seyed Mahdi Rahmati to reduce the half-time deficit to 3-1.

    But Iran crushed any lingering ambitions of a revival in the 73rd minute when captain Javad Nekounam converted a penalty.

    Iran now lead Group E on 11 points, three better than Qatar, who play Bahrain later.

    The Iranians will reach the final stage with a game to spare if Bahrain fail to beat Qatar in Doha.

      The picture of Asia's third qualifying round for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ became clearer after matchday five today, with Australia, Iran and Iraq progressing with a game to spare, joining the already-qualified Japan, Uzbekistan and Jordan in the last ten of the next stage, leaving just four qualifying berths from three groups to be decided.

      The penultimate fixture, however, proved to be too little too late for China who went out despite winning 4-0 in Singapore, while Korea Republic were dealt a 2-1 blow against Lebanon which saw their celebration parade denied. Join as we review the thrills and spills from across the continent.

      The match
      Thailand 0-1 Australia
      Goals: Brett Holman 76
      Despite losing away in Oman four days ago, Australia bounced back to defeat hosts Thailand. Brett Holman's second-half goal was enough for his side to register their fourth win from five games but coach Holger Osieck's visitors didn't have everything their way in Bangkok, where coach Winfried Schafer's hosts put on a fighting display throughout for their flood-stricken people.

      The Thais went forward from the outset and they caused numerous headaches for the Socceroos, with right-winger Suree Sukha proving coming close to opening the scoring in the first half. At the other end, Josh Kennedy was Australia's livewire upfront but it was Holman that provided the difference, heading home Brett Emerton's pass. While the win secured Australia's path through, it leaves Thailand in the three-way battle for the second qualifying spot against Saudi Arabia and Oman, who shared spoils in a 0-0 draw at Riyadh.

      The surprise
      Lebanon 2-1 Korea Republic
      Goals: Ali Al Saadi 5, Abbas Atwi 31(PEN); Koo Ja Cheol 20 (PEN)
      Lebanon continued their stunning run in Group B under German Theo Bucker, avenging their initial 6-0 defeat in Seoul against Korea Republic by sealing a shocking 2-1 home win. Playing in front of their own supporters, the Lebanese got off to a perfect start when they went ahead on five minutes, centre-back Ali Al Saadi latching onto a rebound to fire into the top corner.

      Coach Cho Kwang-Rae's side drew themselves level on 20 minutes courtesy of Koo Ja-Cheol, who equalised from the penalty spot. However, the VfL Wolfsburg midfielder went from hero to villain as he tripped down Mahmoud el Ali to gift the rivals a chance of retribution from 12 yards, which Lebanon No10 Abbas Atwi coolly converted to restore their lead. The remaining game saw the Taeguk Warriors push hard but the absence of striking-ace Park Chu-Young took its toll as they lacked accuracy in front of goal, with the hosts holding on for their first ever victory against the East Asians.

      The other attractions
      In the section's other game, Kuwait came from behind to down the already-eliminated United Arab Emirates 2-1, pulling themselves back into contention. Fahad Al Enezi struck shortly after the interval to cancel out Ismail Matar's first-half goal, before Walid Abbas put through his own net to gift the hosts a much-needed three points. The result, coupled with Lebanon's win, leaves Group B the only one where both spots are still up for grabs.

      In Group A's first game, defender Zheng Zheng netted a brace while Yu Hai and captain Li Weifeng were also on target as a ten-man China crushed hosts Singapore 4-0 for only their second victory. Their hopes, however, lasted just five hours when Iraq negotiated their way though with a 3-1 triumph with Jordan to claim the section's second qualifying spot and confirm the Chinese' demise.

      Group E front-runners Iran continued their free-scoring form with a comfortable 4-1 win over Indonesia, with their progression confirmed later on by the goalless draw played out between Qatar and Bahrain in Doha. The latter two are left vying for the section’s remaining spot in the concluding matchday on 29 February, where the Bahrainis are facing a must-win match against Indonesia, while the Qataris need just a point against Iran to go through.

      Elsewhere, in Group C, already-qualified Japan suffered their first defeat, falling in Pyongyang as hosts Korea DPR recorded a consolation win despite early elimination – Pak Nan Chol heading home the only goal shortly after the restart. In the group’s other game, Uzbekistan recorded a comfortable 3-0 triumph at home against bottom side Tajikistan to move three points clear at the top.

      The Player
      Lebanon captain Roda Antar played the leading role as his unfancied side edged out the strongly-favoured Korea Republic. The former Cologne playmaker had a hand in their opening goal while pulling the strings in the midfielder as they held off their group rivals.

      The stat
      16 - Their 1-0 defeat in Korea DPR has proved to be Japan’s first loss under Alberto Zaccheroni, who saw his 16-match unbeaten record in charge of the Asian champions brought to an end in Pyongyang.

      What they said
      Oman goalkeeper Ali Al Habsi: "We put in brilliant performance away in Saudi Arabia as they enjoyed the home advantage and support. The point we gained keeps our hopes still alive and we will do our utmost in the closing game to progress. We obtained four points against the likes of Australian and Saudi Arabia and the good results come as a timely boost for us."

        I just read violent reactions regarding the result between Australia and Oman.. The result 0-1 wherein Australia was defeated unexpectedly.. Oman's goal was pretty sweet.. I'm glad that Australia won against other team after this defeat..
