Asian Cup 2007

Asian Cup probably does not get the attention of the World cup and the Euro Cup. But it definately features some of the hottest talent of footballers from teh biggest continent of the world. Asian football is yet to climb the heights of European and South American but has shown promise especially by some countries like Japan, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Iran. Most recently Australia has also joined the AFC as Australians bear some European talents like Mark Viduka, Harry Kewell, John Aloisi, Lucas Neil and many others will definately bring quality to the Asian level.

This year's Asian Cup hosted jointly by 4 countries is now on the climax stage. The teams that ha reached are Iraq and Saudi Arabia. Iraq are the surprised team that has entered the final whereas Saudi are already champions couple of times. Iraq ousted one of the tournament favourites South Korea in a tight encounter which were decided on penalties while Saudi ousted the defending champions Japan in the another semifinal.

Certainly Saudi Arabia are the favourties and Iraq are the underdog team. But it won't be a surprise if Iraq wins the tournament as Iraq has already won some memorable matches in the tournament. Let's see who wins the Asian cup 2007 in a few days.
