Matildas suffer late winner, fall to Japan in Asian Cup final

The Matildas fell to Japan in the final.

Australia have missed a golden opportunity to head into next year's Women's World Cup as Asian champions after suffering an 11th-hour final defeat against Japan in Amman.

Japan substitute Kumi Yokoyama crashed home an impressive winner against the run of play with six minutes remaining after the Matildas had dominated large chunks of the match against the 2011 World Cup winners.

It was a much-improved performance from Australia after some indifferent performances at the eight-nation tournament after...

They now look forward to a semifinal against Thailand late on Tuesday.

That will be the rarest of occasions -- a match deep in a tournament...

Tournament of Nations: Sam Kerr (16') Japan 1-2 Australia

Australia's Women's Asian Cup campaign is well and truly back on track following an 8-0 win over an outclassed Vietnam in Jordan.

An opening scoreless draw against South Korea left little margin for error on Tuesday (Wednesday AEST), but the Matildas responded in perfect fashion with a one-sided victory to sit top of their group on goal difference.

The rout means Australia need to only draw their final group match against Japan to reach the semifinals, and at the same time shore up one of five tickets...
