North Korea is relegated to the Cup final in Asia after the fateful World Cup qualification in football



Last week's World Cup qualifying match between North Korea and South Korea became a surrealistic experience for the few – including Fifa's chairman Gianni Infantino – who were present at an empty football stadium in Pyongyang.

The Asian Football Federation now announces that the final of the AFC Cup, Asia's equivalent to the Europa League, on November 2 between North Korean 4.25 SC and Al Ahed from Lebanon will be moved from Pyongyang to Chinese Shanghai "for logistical and other reasons."

is not mentioned last week's match, however, that commercial partners have warned of challenges including TV broadcasts.
