LATEST AFC DISCIPLINARY COMMITTEE DECISIONS PUBLISHED
The Committee also found that the DPR Korea Football Association, the DPR Korea U-16 Head Coach Yung Jong-su and the DPR Korea goalkeeper for the match Jang Paek-ho were all guilty of bringing the game into disrepute following the deliberate conceding of a goal in the 49th minute of the match and ordered:
DPR Korea Football Association: USD20,000 fine and exclusion from AFC U-19 Championship 2018 (suspended for a probationary period of one year)
DPR Korea official Yung Jong-su: USD5,000 fine and twelve (12)-month match suspension
DPR Korea player Jang Paek-ho: USD1,000 fine and twelve (12)-month match suspension
Should the U-19 representative team of the DPR Korea Football Association engage in similar behaviour in the AFC U-19 Championship 2018 (Qualifiers), they will be automatically excluded from the competition.
The effect of the match suspensions also means that Yung and Jang are now suspended from the FIFA U-17 World Cup 2017.
