(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Oman coach Philippe Burle said on Tuesday that his boys have to believe in themselves to get past strong rival South Korea in a do-or-die clash for the hosts at the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex on Wednesday.


Oman needs nothing short of a victory to advance to the quarterfinals from Group A after it lost to Jordan 0-1 on Monday night.


The loss pushed the hosts down to third place, with three points. South Korea (four points) is on top, ahead of Jordan (four points) on goal-difference.


Jordan is heavily favoured to beat bottom-placed Myanmar on Wednesday and accumulate seven points, while South Korea would need only a draw against Oman to finish with five points and also progress to the knockouts.


Admitting that 'it is the last chance for his boys', Burle said of Wednesday's must-win clash, ''We need to convert goal-scoring chances, which we failed to do against Jordan. I am hopeful that the boys will rise up to the challenge and seize the half-chances.''


The Frenchman added, ''We possibly played the toughest match in our group on Tuesday - I think Jordan is the toughest team in the group. If we play to our potential [against South Korea], I am hopeful of a positive result.''


Burle told Muscat Daily that he may go with a three-man attack, fielding Sami al Hassani, Abdullah Hadi and Hatem al Hamhami up front right from the start.


''We have to go all out and I may opt for more attacking options. There is not much to lose. I trust my boys, I hope they will come up with something special tomorrow,'' he sai
