Two qualifying groups were drawn Friday, three days after a men's World Cup qualifier was played in curious circumstances in Pyongyang. The teams drew 0-0 in Kim Il Sung Stadium, where FIFA President Gianni Infantino was among a few spectators in a near-empty arena. North Korean officials also imposed a media blackout.
In women's Olympic qualifying, South Korea will host North Korea, Vietnam and Myanmar in a round robin from Feb. 3-9. The other group, hosted by China, involves Australia, Thailand and Taiwan. The top two teams in each group advance to the playoffs on March 6-11, with two teams qualifying for the 12-nation Olympic tournament.
