Korea fell to Australia 2-1 in extra time in the 2015 AFC Asian Cup final, failing to end a 55-year title drought at the tournament last night.
After the teams ended the 90 minutes of play tied at 1-1 with a dramatic goal by Son Heung-min in the last moments of regulation, James Troisi scored in the final seconds of the first extra period, as the host country claimed their first Asian Cup trophy.
With its first defeat at the tournament, Korea finished in second place after reaching the finals for the first time in 27 years.
The match was also the final international match for Cha Du-ri, who was the only member of the national team in the 2002 World Cup who played in the tournament.■
