After eliminating Saudi Arabia, the Asian Tigers won with Australia


Only four remained in the game — Iran, Qatar, Jordan and South Korea. Klinsmann’s national team is having an incredible Asian Cup of Nations. It won, on penalties, against Mancini&#39s Saudi Arabia (equalizing in full recovery). Then, in the quarterfinals, it took its challenge with Australia into overtime with another goal in full recovery, before winning in overtime with a goal from star Son.

Back home, everyone is crazy about Klinsmann, South Korea’s new big hero. Under contract until 2026, the former Inter Milan striker is living a dream. After winning the Gold Cup as U.S. coach in 2013, he may now win the Asian Cup. The Asian Tigers haven&#39t managed to impose themselves in this competition since as far back as 1960.

Now standing in the way of Klinsmann's South Korea is surprise Jordan. On paper, the Koreans look decidedly favored, but, in this Asian Cup of Nations, è everything happened and, therefore, it will need the perfect match for the team of the former German bomber to reach the final. Meanwhile, Klinsmann, after three years away without coaching, is enjoying his big moment. And it could get even better.
