It is a heartbreaking end to the Asian Cup from South Korea. Australia have won the Asian Cup in Extra Time, 2-1 the final score. Massimo Luongo hit a fantastic shot to end the first, while Son Heung-Min blew off the roof by scoring with the last kick of normal time. But a Kim Jin-Su error at the end of the first half of extra time allowed Tomi Juric to walk in, cross and James Troisi tapped it home. Korea could not find another miraculous breakthrough.
Roy (or someone) will have their review of the game and the Tavern crew will later record a podcast to review the entire Asian Cup.
Thank you for the memories, Korea.
Tavern Owner interrupting: one hell of a game…So Close. But echoing sentiments I expressed in the comment section below, huge thanks to the tireless efforts of the Tavern crew, going into extra time for this one. Despite the title slipping away from them, Lots of positives to take away for Team Korea – but we’re all scrambling to catch up on sleep, etc. We’ll see you shortly for some follow up posts and what should be a really neat podcast to conclude the 2015 Asian Cup tournament. By arriving at the Asian Cup finals, the rehabilitation of the KNT, it’s image and progress going forward seems to be underway. And you know what, the morning sun has just come up and shining brightly here at the physical Tavern. Game on.
