In the last group stage, South Korea drew Japan, the last two champions, 1-1.There was a lot of talk about Australia coming up against a good opponent in the knockout stage, but the fact is that it was the team and the Korean team’s own efforts that led to their best Asian Cup performance so far.No matter who the Chinese and Japanese teams reach the final, the new face of the final should not be underestimated.South Korea’s best previous Asian Cup finish was third in 2003, when it beat Japan 1-0 in the third-place match.In 2014, South Korea ranked fourth and lost to China 2-1 in the third-place final.Vietnam beat Thailand 2-0 in the first play-off match of the Asian Women’s Football Cup yesterday.Tomorrow Chinese Taipei will fight Thailand and two days later Vietnam will fight Chinese Taipei.The winner of the three-team round robin tournament will also qualify for the World Cup, while the other two teams will compete in a cross-continent play-off.(Xizi Lin)
