    Wow, if Jordan and Uzbek had drawn, would it have gone to PKs, or just a drawing of lots? They beat HK and PAL by the exact same scores!

    big games start tomorrow, round robin between 6 teams, no playoffs/championship game. The teams with the two best records take it all!

    this is on my us central time;
    1.35 am China vs Vietnam

    4 35 am Australia vs Japan
    4.35 am N. Korea vs S. Korea

    as reported on another thread; Australian game can be seen over here
    http://www.7live.com.au

    predictions; China will try to use Vietnam as a punching bag. N Korea over S. Korea, as the latter recently lost friendlies to Mexico & China.
    Japan vs Australia? tough one! The Matildas have had injuries recently to arguably their two best players, Kerr & Foord, as well to the W-League's leading scorer, Crummer, and their best youth player, Harrison. In the meantime Japan's Bundesliga connection has been a total disaster so far this season; while Iwabuchi & Nakasato are trying to recover from injuries, once considered a world class premier forwards, Ogimi & Ando languish on the sub benches. Hopefully Japan can scrub up some good players from their own home league with the likes Myama & Kawasumi

    you can pick up up stream for the Australia-Japan game over here/ Video quality is not good, but it's got English commentary
    http://www.zhangyu.tv/121013

    it's currently halftime..........Australia 2, Japan 1

    the Matildas physical play giving Japan a tough time, but to their credit they were able to score in the last few seconds of the half to come back with just one down

    Caught most of the China-Vietnam and Japan-Australia matches. A few very general thoughts:

    Vietnam, as probably expected, was outclassed, though they played extremely hard and have a fairly solid goalkeeper. China was very unimpressive. They controlled play for the most part, especially in the second half, but really did very little to create chances when Vietnam was in their shell. Maybe they'll look better against teams that are more committed to attack. They'll have too, because they have no chance at qualification with more performances like that.

    I thought Australia played one of the best matches I've ever seen from them. They still need to improve their defensive organization. Japan pulled them apart a few times with skilled combinations, but other times Australia simply lost track of attackers, more than once letting players roam unmarked right down the center of the field. Other than that, the Matildas were fluid, confident and reliable on the ball, and really worked the ball around effectively in the attacking third. They got a nice assist from the referee on their second goal, but in my mind were clearly the better team today.

    The 1-1 draw between the two Koreas seems a good result for everyone except the two Koreas.

    With 5 games in 10 days, I think we will see some surprises from matchday 3 when players start to tire unless the coaches manage to rotate intelligently but with only 17 outfield players, they do not have much margin.

    The tie-breaker if teams are level on points in the goal difference, so teams should take advantage of the game against the weaker team Vietnam.

    Agree, solid game in defense from Matildas outstanding performance by Williams and finish in front of the goal were crucial to this score line. Australia had few chances but took them all. Japan had many chances but finished only one. Were they better? Yup, they scored more goals. Did they outplay Japan - nah, not really ;)
