Pak Kwang-Ryong scored from the spot after 11 minutes following a handball by skipper Fadhli Shas while Kim Yu-Song made it 2-0 minutes before half-time.

Just 12 minutes later, at the 58th, Jong Il Gwan scored North Korea's fourth. "But ... the situations are like that". We have two matches here. We have to do it. The first match we win. "And we are very satisfied". His team will enter the return leg on Monday as the favourites and another win shall put North Korea back on track to qualify for the Finals.

The two sides will resume their rivalry on Monday at this same venue which is supposed to be the home games for Malaysia.

"Look, North Korea was a correct victor, but the defeat was very heavy concerning what happened", Malaysia coach Manuel Martinho Vingado said. Lebanon leads with 10 points, while Malaysia is last with one.

Lebanon are top with ten points, while North Korea and Hong Kong sit second and third respectively, each with five points but with the head-to-head results benefiting the Koreans.
