Australia just won Asian Cup at home in extra time 2-1 against South Korea.

Well Done and congratulation to all Aussies.

Why would they kick a quality team(By Asian standards) out?

How did they let them in the first place?

Australia is not asia. It was a corrupt move to let them in, in first place. Basically at the world cup asia get 2 and half spots, and australasia get half spot. Australia by moving to afc made sure they didnt have to fight for a chancy half spot.

they hate Australia :mrgreen:
you know same old deal, obnoxious, arrogant aussies etc - dont mesh with Asian culture plus it takes away a lucrative world cup place that the Asian teams feel belongs to them. also FIFA can make more money in sponsorship from bigger Asian nations.

yeah it was political to let them in in the first place and now the landscape has changed
