"Australia, Bahrain, Iraq, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, United Arab Emirates and Uzbekistan are in contention to meet Senegal." ... this is misleading at best. In fact, AFC and CAF are on equal standing with each guaranteed three spots for the Olympics. Only the fourth placed team of each confederation will contest a playoff to decide who will go through as the seventh team.

It is a shame to lose like this at home even though the match was a dead rubber. Round 4 will be tough for sure, especially if Japan gets drawn in a pool with 3 that have topped their groups. Hope Japan can pull a miracle and bring back their Asia Cup form in Round 4.
