The only time i read something about the Asian Cup in the Football Fever section on Tuesdays in the Daily, which is only two pages long. During the A-League when Sydney FC were on top and the World Cup was on it got up tp 15-20 pages. Or a couple pages in the Friday Sports liftout after 15 pages of league. Mind you it got as much attention as the Wallibies and Swans.
Just read today that FFA have spent $2 million to prepare the Socceroos for the Asia Cup. Interesting thing is there is no real major prize money for the winner, expect entry into the Confed Cup and automatic entry in the next Asian Cup, which should have more prize money, if the Cup gets recognised by the wider football community and more sponsors.
Socceroos 3 Singapore 0
Viduka 51,88 Kewell 76
Was :O when Dukes scored for Australia, that'd unheard of!

I hear Viduka considering extending his international career so he can score more goals against weak Asian defences and improve his strike rate.
Hard to tell how good that performance was, as Singapore didn't even make the Asian Cup. To be kept scoreless in the first half is pretty poor. If we leave those gaps in defence against better attacking sides we could be in a bit of trouble. But i think Singapore meant to be good in defence crap in attack. So i guess that explains it.
The third goal was awesome. Pretty dodgy performance otherwise, but Kewell looked in a different class for a while there.

TBF when he's playing Kewell is decidedly decent. It's just he's crocked so often it's largely ruined his career.
He'd have played for England if he'd have gone down that route, he'd have been a lot better than many of the stiffs we tried wide left before Joe Cole stepped up.

"Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

BTW, if you didn't watch the game in question, Kewell came off the bench well into the second half and dominated, scoring once and setting Viduka up with the last goal, against average opposition. That was what my comment was discussing.
