Hard-hittin’ Asian Cup!

National Stadium Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur – So this end result eliminates Malaysia, but that was only a matter of time anyway… But Iran managed to hold China to a draw – and that’s what it was: China threatened all night, and Iran defended valiantly. China were on the attack from the get-go, and in the 6th minute Shao Jiayi netted one off a penalty. At the 33 minute mark China got their second when Mao Jianqing slammed one home.

Shamed into action, facing a slaughter – the Iranians came to life. Mahdavikia slipped a goal through at the end of the first half, and there was a glimmer of hope. The Iran boys attacked, and attacked, and the Chinese calmly absorbed the pressure – On the 73rd minute, Nekounam headed a fantastic goal home. End result: 2-2.

Gelora Bung Karno Stadium, Jakarta – Bahrain finally got their win with a 2-1 win over South Korea. Bahrain stunned the two-time champion, getting the winner off Ismail Abdullatif. South Korea started well, and goaled at the 4 minute mark – Kim Do-heon sliding it home. Just prior to half time, Salman Isa leveled the show, and got the winner at the 85 minute mark.
