Malaysia will end 2017 without a victory to show for the first time since 2006 after they were hammered 4-1 by North Korea in an Asian Cup qualifier Group B match at the I-Mobile Stadium on Monday.

With the defeat, Malaysia is out of the running for a spot in the 2019 Asian Cup Finals in the United Arab Emirates.

Malaysia started the match aggressively and put the North Koreans under pressure with tight marking but their positive attitude quickly fizzled out as Jorn Andersen's men stamped their authority.

Kim stole the limelights by scoring in the 15th, 20th and 44 th minutes for his side who just outclassed the Asean nation with the same scoreline in their last encounter on Friday at this same venue. Group leader Lebanon has already advanced, but Hong Kong still has a chance with five points from four matches.

The changes did not make much of a difference with the North Koreans adding their fourth goal in the 78th minute through Park Kwang Ryong, while Safawi ensured Malaysia did not go back empty handed with a consolation goal in the 85th minute.
