North Korea's World Cup qualifying highlights


Iran's failure to defeat South Korea in Seoul earlier in the day meant North Korea only needed to draw in their final group match against Saudi Arabia in Riyadh.

They did exactly that, with a 0-0 result putting them into their first World Cup finals since 1966.

Back then, they were memorably beaten 5-3 in the quarter-finals by Portugal - despite taking a 3-0 lead.
