Saudi Arabia won 5-0 at Hong Kong on Thursday to complete an 8-0 win over two legs and progress to the third round of Asia's World Cup qualifying.

Carrying a 3-0 lead from the first leg, Saudi Arabia extended its lead through Hassan Fallatah in the 34th minute before second-half goals from Mohammed Noor, Nassir Al-Shamrani, Mohammed Al-Sahlawi and Osama Hawsawi.

The result moves Saudi Arabia into the group-stage third round, which will include regional powers such as Japan, South Korea and Australia.

Saudi Arabia did not qualify for last year's World Cup - the first time it had missed football's main event since 1990.
