How 'Korean Gerrard' became Swansea star and Liverpool target Ki

Swansea fans will be glad to see Ki Sung-yeung back in action.
It would not be a surprise if South Korea midfielder Ki Sung-yeung is chosen Swansea City's player of the EPL season.

There was once a time when the South Korean media referred to Ki Sung-yeung as 'The Korean Gerrard' or 'Kirrard' -- a comparison once welcomed by the player himself. No longer though -- the 26 year-old deserves more than to be called the Korean version of anything.

He is simply Ki, a cultured talent who has been one of the stars of the English Premier League this season and is currently the best Asian midfielder.

Fans of the more advanced and offensive Omar Abdulrahman would have something to say...

Japan, Iran, Qatar keep Asian flag flying after Australia's heroics

A new-look Japan took the field on Friday night in Valid Halilhodzic's first game in charge, yet it was the old guard who came off the bench in Oita to secure a 2-0 win over Tunisia. It was a solid result and a satisfactory performance.

The Bosnian, who led Algeria to the last 16 at the 2014 World Cup, had promised to shake up a team that has looked in need of exactly that over the past few months. There were only two survivors from the 11 that started the last game, the quarterfinal of the 2015...

South Korea's Park Chu-young needs to find his Seoul back home

In four years, South Korean striker Park Chu-young made one Premier League appearance for Arsenal.

One headline in the Seoul media summed it up: "The striker with three goals in two years to return."

Park Chu-young has signed for FC Seoul again.

Back in 2005, he was the biggest story in South Korean football, a 19-year-old nicknamed "The Football Genius." Now, despite the lack of goals, he is still the biggest story, but everything else has changed. At 29, he has more to prove than ever to fans around the world, in his homeland and perhaps even to himself.

Where to start with the story of Park?

1. Glory to the brave

It was, without question, the least Socceroos-like performance of the Asian Cup. But they won't care.

Australia did not put in the type of performance coach Ange Postecoglou would have wanted in the decider, arguably being dominated for the first time...

Milligan comes out tops for Australia in final against gutsy South Koreans

Midfielder Massimo Luongo scored Australia's first goal in their 2-1 extra-time victory over South Korea in the Asian Cup final held in Sydney.

The securing of Australia's first major men's football trophy -- the 2015 AFC Asian Cup -- came after a classic team performance against a determined South Korea side as they won 2-1 in the final thanks to James Troisi's extra-time strike.

For a change, it wasn't Tim Cahill who carried the Socceroos on his shoulders as Ange Postecoglou's young side dug deep to taste glory in front of 76,385 fans at Stadium Australia in Sydney.

Australia cap a fine Asian Cup by beating South Korea in an epic final

Australia won the Asian Cup 2-1 in extra-time against South Korea in a final that provided a fitting end to a fine tournament.

This was a clash beautiful in its intensity, drama, tension and the way it demanded your attention for every sweat-soaked second.

There were moments of quality (a great goal from Massimo Luongo) and chaos (South Korea finished the 90 minutes with four centre-backs and no centre-forwards on the pitch) and it ended, as many thought it would, with Australian hands on the trophy.
