The Dragons of Hong Kong are bottom of Group E with one point after four matches, while the White Wolves of Uzbekistan are second with four points, just behind group leaders Iran on goal difference.

Ranked 154th in the latest FIFA rankings, Hong Kong started their 2026 World Cup qualification campaign by beating Bhutan 4-2 on aggregate in the first round to make it into the group stage.

Grouped alongside Iran, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan, Hong Kong lost their opening match 4-0 away in Iran, before getting their first point in a 2-2 draw with Turkmenistan on home soil.

The Dragons head into the double-header against Uzbekistan looking to record their first-ever win over the White Wolves and also bag three points for the first time in the group stage.

Hong Kong’s only win this year was a 2-1 victory over arch-rivals China on January 1, but that was followed up with 2-1 and 2-0 defeat to Tajikistan and Saudi Arabia respectively before they headed to the Asian Cup.

Jorn Andersen’s side failed to pick up a point during the Asian Cup in January, conceding seven goals while scoring just once to exit the competition in the group stage.

Meanwhile, Uzbekistan head into this contest in fine form having last lost any game in 90 minutes of football in September, which was a 3-0 defeat to the United States in an international friendly.

Srecko Katanec’s side have since played 12 matches, including two World Cup qualifiers, international friendlies and the Asian Cup which they exited through penalties after a 1-1 draw with eventual winners Qatar in the quarter-finals.

The White Wolves are second in their World Cup qualifying group after beating Turkmenistan 3-1 and salvaging a 2-2 draw against Iran, who are just ahead due to a superior goal difference.

Uzbekistan are currently ranked 66th in the latest rankings released by FIFA, climbing two spots from the previous rankings, a testament to their improvement over the years.
