Australia ride momentum

Asian Cup
 By John Duerden

For China and North Korea, the East Asian Cup can be a confidence builder

China are the hosts for the East Asian Cup and are seeking their their third title.

The East Asian Cup is an unusual tournament.

The trophy itself doesn't really matter; few fans would be able to describe what it looks like much less name the nations to have lifted it since it came into existence in 2003 (China and South Korea have won it twice and Japan have one win).

Big Phil and the samba streak running through Guangzhou Evergrande

Luiz Felipe Scolari's Guangzhou Evergrande hammered Chongqing Lifan 7-0 in the Chinese Super League.

You don't hire 'Big Phil' Scolari without big money -- one, to meet the demands of a World Cup winning coach and, two, to bring in the players he wants. And the players he wants at Guangzhou Evergrande, the Chinese powerhouse he took over last month, are Brazilian.

Days earlier Fabio Cannavaro left the Cantonese juggernaut after just six months in charge. The dismissal (for that is what it was despite the usual 'mutual consent' stuff) couldn't be because of results at home; the four-time champions...
