North Korea registered their second win in this year's International Friendship tournament in Qatar as they defeated the hosts 1-0 in their second match today.

The Koreans, who have qualified for the 2010 World Cup, owed their win to their striker Choe Chol-man, who scored the only goal on the night in the 59th minute to give his side their sixth point.

In today's other match, Mali bounced back from their first defeat at the hands of Korea DPR to beat Iran 2-1.

Karim Ansarifard gave the lead to Iran after only eight minutes but Mali levelled the scores in the 28th minute through Tenema N'Diaye and two minutes later Bakaye Traore netted the winner.
