Asian Cup qualifiers: Malaysia outdone by North Koreaā€¯

National head coach Nelo Vingada did not hide his disappointment when his team went down tamely 1-4 to North Korea in their Asian Cup Qualifier at the i-mobile Stadium, in Buriram tonight.

Meanwhile, North Korea's coach Jorn Andersen said, the result proved that the better team won the match, as his players controlled every aspect of the match throughout the 90 minutes.

After being postponed several times due to Malaysia's prohibition of their citizens to travel to North Korea, the game, designated to be hosted in Pyongyang, was finally carried on at the Thai north eastern city. 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.
