Pyongyang: DPR Korea's Hwaepul SC advanced to the 2018 AFC Cup group stage after a 3-0 win over FC Erchim on Tuesday.

The Koreans continued to dominate in the second half, while Battulga Zorigt's charges defended resolutely but failed to make a comeback.

Hwaepul SC will join 4.25 SC, Hang Yuen FC and Benfica Macau in Group I, and begin their campaign on March 7.
