China survives…’because of a single goal’ as Thailand crash out despite beating Singapore 3-1

Singapore helps China beat Thailand 1-3 to advance to Korea-China third qualifier

Singapore saved China’s fading hopes of qualifying for the World Cup.

Singapore lost 1-3 to Thailand 1-3 in the sixth match of Group C of the FIFA Confederations Cup North America 2026 Asia-Pacific second qualifying round at Rajamangala Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, on Monday (June 11).

Earlier in the day, South Korea qualified for the third round as the group topper, with one ticket to the third round remaining in Group C.

Earlier that same day, South Korea defeated China 1-0 at Sangam World Cup Stadium in Seoul. China, who would have qualified with nine points even with a draw against South Korea, will now have to wait for the results of the Thailand and Singapore matches.

Thailand is in third place with five points, three points behind China. Singapore was one point away from elimination.

If Thailand can beat Singapore, they will be tied on points with China. In addition to points, the FIFA-sanctioned tournament is also based on goal differential, and China’s goal differential is zero, with nine goals scored and nine conceded in six games.

The Thai players’ determination for the World Cup did not subside. They struck again in the 34th minute of the second half.
