I'm surprised it was that close, though not surprised Honda missed so many times when there was actual pressure on. It's a good thing he keeps getting penalty shots -- the one in the game against Palestine the refs practically put in the net FOR him!

Anyway, they can breathe a sigh of relief on getting through -- should have been a lot easier. But with SK playing not much better it's still anyone's game, unless they Aussies do as well. Congrats to Japan -- tough luck to Iraq.

Amazing I can't get enough of the Asian Cup.

Anyone know any bars where I can watch Kuwait vs Oman?

Should be a cracker Dave, I would also recommend the Uzbekistan vs Saudi Arabia matchup. Pretty sure both games will not be broadcasted anywhere.

@Smith I'm starting to suspect Honda ran off with your woman. Your obsession with giving him stick isn't healthy.

firstrowsports will have the games mentioned above. They usually have most sports events. I did not include the entire URL.

@ Kitzrow - cheers for the tip, mate! Always on the lookout for good links! Holidaying back home in Aus right now, they aren't even showing the Socceroos games live on free-to-air...
