AFC Asian Cup 2011
Japan’s chattering classes freely suggesting that he was the fourth choice of the Japan FA. Enough already, for the fans of Blue Samurai to know that three candidates had turned down their country’s approaches but too much to have a coach who didn’t embrace the Japanese way. One gets the feeling that the Asian Cup means more to Japan than it does to Zaccheroni, although he seems to be listening to the jungle drums.
South Korean’s Koo Ja Cheol and Ji Dong Won have maturity beyond their years and with the energy and irreverence of youth. These are two beautiful players who reflect the longer term benefits of Korean FA and club investment at youth level through the K-League. Around them are archetypal Korean machines and leading all is the irreplaceable Park Ji Sung.
Japan are still in the hunt for an unprecedented fourth Asian crown and South Korea are looking to correct one of the great anomalies of the Asian Confederation; they haven’t won the continental title since 1960 despite being Asia’s most consistent performer on the biggest stage of all, the FIFA World Cup.
