Asian Cup 2015: From Bay 54 and Beyond

Hamish Neal was there.


Australia joined Japan in becoming the only nations this century to contest back-to-back Asian Cup finals after they saw off the burgeoning United Arab Emirates side 2-0 in their Asian Cup semi final in front of a record crowd (21,079) in Newcastle for a football international. South Korea, who beat Iraq on Monday evening, lie in wait for a Saturday night match-up at Stadium Australia.
