South Korea punches ticket to 2018 World Cup following 0-0 draw with Uzbekistan Updated: 2017-09-06 06:53:55 KST

It wasn't edge of the seat viewing, but the job is done.
South Korea's national football team has booked their ticket to the 2018 World Cup, following a drab nil-nil draw with Uzbekistan on Tuesday night.
This marks South Korea's ninth-consecutive qualification for the World Cup, after a nail-biting conclusion, to the Asian qualifying round.
Heading into the fixture South Korea was in second place in Group A, but only two points above Syria and Uzbekistan.
The scoreless draw and Syria's failure to beat Iran was enough to send South Korea through.
Although the qualifying campaign wasn't as pretty nor as easy as many fans had hoped head coach Shin Tae-yong vowed to show South Korea's football prowess in Russia next summer.
