Iraq v Saudi Arabia 1-0

A happy ending.

Iraq outthought and outfought Saudi to deservedly win their first ever Asian Cup in front of an appreciative Jakartan crowd.

All the talk of Saudi Arabia bussing in thousands may or may not have happened. Certainly in the stadium the vast majority of the crowd was backing Iraq as were the bevvying bods in BuGils before the game. The header 15 minutes from the end was cheered by Iraqi and Indon alike as the Saudis were harried all the way through the game and ne'er given a chance to settle.

Great stuff and a big improvement on the new Wembley's first cup final.

I'll add more tomorrow along with some pictures.
