The image has become a widely used symbol of defiance by Qataris in response to the diplomatic crisis

Korea now has two matches remaining - one with Iran in late August and the other with Uzbekistan in early September.

South Korea slipped to a 3-2 defeat against Qatar in Doha on Tuesday, with their World Cup qualifying fate still far from certain with two Group A games to go.

As hosts of the 2022 World Cup finals, the Qataris were desperate to qualify for next year's tournament in Russian Federation but have managed just two wins and a draw in eight matches in the third round of Asian qualifying.

"I take full responsibility for this result", said Stielike, who admitted his job could be on the line after a stuttering campaign.

The white T-shirts that the players wore, were emblazoned with a picture of their premier, an image that has become a symbol of Qatari defiance in response to Gulf-crisis.

"I have to say this is not my decision, we have to wait and see", he said.

Al Haydos' 25th-minute free-kick opened the scoring and Afif doubled Qatar's lead after 51 minutes, before Ki Sung-yueng's goal prompted a strong response.

Goals from South Korea's Ki Sung-Yueng and Hwang Hee-Chan in the 62nd and 69th minute seemed to have secured South Korea a valuable point in their attempt to get to Russian Federation, but fine work from Brazilian-born Rodrigo Tabata set up Al-Haydos for a 74th-minute victor.

Qatar threatened again at the start of the second half and, after shooting wide from close range, Al Haydos turned provider for a second goal, Afif driving high past Kwoun Sun-tae.
