    Yeah we're stronger than Australia. Their fans would probably admit this as well.

    But in a single knockout game, anything can happen and Australia is a side more than capable of knocking us out.

    Australia won the last Asian Cup. Don't care about talent on paper. Have to respect the champs.

    It was a friendly. They were prob testing something new. Who knows. Considering how we played against Philippines, I dont think I can safely say we will be able to beat them for sure.

    Funny cause Australia had an equal bad perfomance against Jordan, with a loss as result, unlike South korea.

    Australia lost to them in the group stages at the last Asian cup, hardly choking against us.

    Luck of the draw tbh. If we had faced Japan instead of UAE, I reckon we would’ve lost.


    We are an average side at best. I’d say Iran, Japan and Korea are better than us and maybe just maybe even the Saudis.

    Scary to see China doing a better job against Philipines than Korea tbh. Glad to have Son for that group game.

    I'm not worried against china tbh. Philippines played an attaking football thus leaving a hole in their defense. When they played agaisnt us, they played defensively. That's why we only scored 1 goal agaisnt them.

    this.

    eriksson approached the game very differently with us bc they knew we would be more dangerous. they parked up like iran does against us all the time.

    if we don't score 4 goals against KGZ then they will park the bus and hope for a draw. That would make them the top of the group.

    depends on what happens on this match. If we tie, dont score a bunch of goals or draw. China would probably park the bus in order to draw and top the group. If we win they would have no reason to.

    60% chance koreans choke and we end up on the same side of bracket with japan and iran

    These chinese media keeps hyping up wu lei but I don't see anything special in him. If he goes to europe, there are plenty of players that are class above him. He will just rot in the bench when he goes to europe.

    To be fair he scored some nice goals against filipinos today. better than what any of our players showed.

    To be fair, the Azkals seemed rather heavier than they were in our match, must've used up all of their energy to park the bus against us they created lot's of space for the Chinese to score. Also, both Wu Lei and Yu Dabao weren't all that impressive even after scoring their goals.

    Btw, Lippi saying he's rotating the squad vs us.

    Got a strange feeling Oman's gonna topple Japan, they have a strong team and have clinical finishing, Japan will have trouble at the back. Looking forward to seeing Verbeek get his win tomorrow.

    Perhaps, we'll see something like this vs China:

    Son

    Ji, Lee Seung-woo, Lee Jae-sung(Lee Chung-yong)

    Ju Se-jong, Hwang In-beom

    Hong Chul, Kim Young-gwon, (Jung Seung-hyun/Kwon Kyung-won), Kim Moon-hwan

    Cho Hyun-woo
