[1] the Lebanese FA withdrew from Asian Cup qualifying on August 1st, 2006;
    this was accepted by the AFC and the only match they played was subsequently
    annulled as a qualifier.
[2] Kuwait won 5-4 on penalty kicks.

Remark: the matches against Qatar Olympic ( 4- 4-02, 3-1), Syria U-18 ( 6- 4-02, 1-1), 
        Palestine Olympic (10- 4-02, 7-0), Iran U-23 (12- 4-02, 0-0), Morocco Olympic

        Bahrain ( 8- 6-12, 1-1; no FIFA referees) are not full international matches
        and therefore not included here.
