Valiant effort by the Asians

| No TrackBacks
Not so long ago, managers would look at Asian teams in the World cup and think it was a sure 3 points. Even in 2002, when South Korea reached the semi-finals, people thought it was only because of the fact the World Cup was staged there. Then Saudi Arabia were raped 8-0 by the Germans and people thought, yes same old story. It was considered a huge shock when an Asian team won and it would make the back and front pages of newspapers. Now times have changed dramatically. Teams have to dig deep and have some luck to beat the Asians. South Korea were unlucky not to get past Uruguay who had a wonder goal to thank and the Japanese were defeated on penalties. Australia, New Zealand were unlucky not to make it after some battling performances. North Korea even scored against Brazil.

Now Asians are going to be taken seriously in sports competitions. They have already made tremendous strides to become a future economic powerhouse, they have creativity here, the best products are made here in Asia, we have the largest number of online users. Now in sports events, we are making our mark too. Asia is truly becoming the main region.
