AFC: Saudi Arabia, Japan and Australia win as China and Iran draw

ESPN FC's Jason Dasey and PJ Roberts discuss super-sub Tim Cahill and Australia's performance in a 1-0 win over U.A.E.

With China preparing to take on Iran in a World Cup qualifier on Tuesday, the national team has struggled to match the pace of the improvement in heavily-backed domestic football.

Gao, whose players aim to put the opening loss to South Korea behind them, said: "Chinese football turned professional in 1994 but since 2002 there hasn't been a period of reform like there has been in the last...

China take confidence from South Korea defeat after late goals

China
China got themselves back into the game, but it wasn't quite enough.

China's 2018 World Cup qualifying defeat in Seoul on Wednesday night was widely expected before the match. Indeed, when South Korea made it 3-0 after 66 minutes, it appeared a simple matter of just how many the hosts would score before the game was over.

Yet, despite the risk of being hammered, China struck back with two quickfire goals to boost morale ahead of the visit of Iran next week. From the verge of collapse, it was China unexpectedly pressing for an equalising goal in the late stages. Although...
