Kuwait beat the Philippines 2-1 in the second leg of their World Cup qualifier Thursday to win 5-1 overall and advance to the group stage third round.

Stephan Schrock of the Philippines opened the scoring with a long-range shot in first-half injury time at Manila's Rizal Stadium.

Kuwait's Yousef Nasser leveled the score in the 61st minute then Waleed Ali capped the victory with a goal in the 84th.

Kuwait trounced the Philippines 3-0 in the first leg in Kuwait City last Saturday. Kuwait is looking to qualify for the World Cup finals for only the second time.
