Australia eye first Asian Cup football title

Sydney, Jan 30 (IANS) Australia will be focusing on their performance when they take on South Korea in the final of the Asian Cup Saturday.

Despite a tight encounter expected against South Korea who are yet to concede a goal so far in the tournament and had beaten the hosts 1-0 in the group stage, Australian top scorer Tim Cahill said the meeting with the South Koreans is just another game, reports Xinhua.
“I’m not going to focus on (South) Korea, I’ve never focused on any team we’ve played,” Cahill said.
“I’m only going to focus on us…If we dictate the game with our intensity and the style of football we play and the way we move the ball, it’s going to be very hard for any team to play us.”
While the Australian team is seeking their first Asian Cup title since joining the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) in 2006, South Korea are aiming to win the continental crown for the first time in 55 years, the magnitude of the final for both teams is significant.
