Iraq is obviously the heavy favourite going to this match, however our recent record against Middle Eastern team is quite good: beat Oman & Lebanon in Olympic qualification, beat Bahrain 5-3 in a pre-tournament friendly, beat UAE 2-0 & drew Qatar in group stage. We also expect to have the support of 5000 + fans in the Rajamangala stadium (about 3000 people bought the $300 tour going to Bangkok so far). Therefore I would give Vietnam 20-30% winning chance

For the other match, I have a feeling the Aussie will scrape through somehow, they might played like crap against weaker team but against Japan it could be a different story.

I can see Iran and Saudia Arabia in the semi-final already. Ill give Vietnam an advantage over Iraq, but a totally equal game for me is Japan - Australia. heres the chance for Japan to make a revenge for the WC defeat!

Japan V Australia should be the cream of the crop, Japan loss to Aus in the world cup 3-1, but one has to remember that even though Japan played shit in the WC, they were still able to hold off the aussie attack for a good 80mins before their defences crumbled to concede 3 goals in the last 10mins. This time round Japan is in great form whilst the Aus team is still finding its feet, i'm predicting a 2-1 to Japan

Japan is the best footballing asian nation in late years.They still are.
With all due to respect to iran and korea.But Japan is the best.
Australia's entrance to asia might change this recent domination japan is having.


I call this game between japan & australia the early final.this are the two best nations in this competition playing together.

Australia much better in the 2nd half.

The heat there looks sapping.

This match is becoming pretty dire now. The heat is just too much. The pace of this match is sloth-like.
