On Saturday night, all eyes will turn to Brisbane as Australia takes on South Korea in the Socceroos’ last group stage match of the AFC Asian Cup.
It’s a battle for the coveted top spot in Group A, as the winning team will avoid a possible meeting with defending champion Japan, prior to the Final. Both teams take two wins into the match, both have secured a place in the Quarter Finals, and both want the win.
Fox Sports will be the only place for live vision. Asian Cup Hub has your comprehensive pre-match coverage from former Socceroos including John Aloisi, Mark Bosnich and Ned Zelic from 7.00pm, before the big game kicks off at 8.00pm LIVE in HD on FOX SPORTS 505.
The ABC will replay all the action from 10.00pm AEDT on ABC TV and iview, with live coverage on ABC Radio and live blogging on ABC Online from 8.00pm AEDT.
On ABC TV, Stephanie Brantz will be joined by former Socceroo and current Australia Under 20s coach Paul Okon, providing insight and analysis into both Australia and South Korea’s performance.
Justin Holdforth, Head of ABC Sport and Events said, “The Socceroos have had a great start to their AFC Asian Cup campaign and we hope all Australians get behind them as we move towards the knock out phase. We look forward to Saturday night’s match against South Korea, and from the Quarter Finals we are delighted to be providing all the Socceroos’ matches live on ABC TV, online and radio.”
