Bangkok, Thailand, Jul 28: China and Syria were among the teams to progress in Asia's World Cup qualifying on Thursday as crowd trouble forced the abandonment of Oman's game at Myanmar.
China won 6-1 at Laos to complete a 13-3 aggregate victory, and moved into the group stage third round, when the region's heavyweights such as Japan, South Korea and Australia will enter the fray.
Syria also produced an authoritative 4-0 away win over Tajikistan for a 6-1 aggregate, while Kuwait beat the Philippines and Jordan progressed at the expense of Nepal.
In Myanmar, fans threw objects at opposition players and the match was stopped with Oman winning 2-0 on the night and 4-0 on aggregate. AP
