Australia won its first ever Asian Cup title with a nervy and dramatic 2-1 extra - time win over South Korea at Stadium Australia in Sydney. James Troisi etched his name in Australian football history with the winner late in extra-time, lashing home from close range after superb work on the byline from Tomi Juric, ABC reported. The Western Sydney Wanderers striker held up the ball remarkably before nutmegging his marker, before putting the ball on a plate for Troisi to finish. Rising star Massimo Luongo had put Australia ahead in the first half of regular time with a sizzling finish, receiving a good pass from Trent Sainsbury before turning 180 degrees to skin his marker before unleashing an unstoppable drive to beat Kim Jim Hyeon. But South Korea, who edged the game on the balance of play, finally got a deserved equaliser when star midfielder Son Heung-min scored in the dying seconds of the second-half to send the match to extra time, after a physical, end-to-end encounter.
