I wish that the final would be between us and iraq, and iraq beaten us last time but not this time.
as for japan here is revenge for all the finals weve lost to u , by the way Uzbekistan are a lot tougher then japan IMO

Id rather know something about every thing than know every thing about something

There is no surprising of seeing these 4 teams in the semifinals . That`s cos all of them are big teams .. of course with whom got too !

i.e , KSA won this Asian cup 3 times .. and was in the final 5 times in row . S.korea won maybe 2 or 3 cups .. Japan 4 cups and Iraq is good team and can do it this time .

I can`t predict who to reach the final , it`s really difficult .
all are deserved and have the abilities to be in the final .


peace

Saudi team and Japan know each other very well ,
they have faced each other so many times .. Saudi team won some games and Japan too , u can`t decide who is better than other or can win in this match ..
in the last 2 games between these two teams , each one won at home over the other team .


Korea and Iraq is difficult to predict who can win too ..


let me say .. the final might be between ( Korea v KSA ) .

I am rooting for Iraq, whether they will win it or not is another story, but considering how much the country has been going through, it will be nice to see them winning it all. They are definitely the underdog at this point.

Never let desperation make you gullible.

Korea were extremely poor against Iran and should be counting their blessings that theyve managed to get through. but theyre organised and are quite a tactical team. this doesnt play in Iraqs favour unfortunately. i think when playing the koreans its gonna be hard getting a goal so we'll get frustrated and starting running rampant on the pitch doing stupid shit and forgetting the organisation that has gotten us this far.

in the saudi-japan game i think the japanese will go through. theyll last the 90 minutes and theyre too disciplined a side to lose to the saudis.

Japan won it 3 times, not 4

yup , you are right .

Saudi Arabia won the Asian cup in 1984 , 1988 and 1996
while they lost the final in 1992 and 2000
which means they played in the final 5 times in row .
an awesome and brilliant record , absolutely !

Japan won this cup in 1992 , 2000 and 2004 (3 times ) .
