AFC Asian Cup, Australia, Matildas, coach Alen Stajic, draw, Vietnam, Amman, Group B, Japan, South Korea

MATILDAS coach Alen Stajcic has been dealt a lemon in the AFC Asian Cup draw but he chooses to overcome the lopsided scenario on the pitch with results rather than words.

Although Australia is expected to belt Vietnam in the nation’s second Group B clash on Wednesday morning at Amman Stadium (EST) to send that emerging football nation crashing out of the competition, it’s the nature of the draw which has raised eyebrows across Asia.

“The most important thing is worrying about ourselves and how we’re going to play against Vietnam and Japan (in the third match) and also moving into the future,’’ Stajcic said.

However the draw has come under scrutiny as Australia (FIFA-ranked sixth) has Japan (11th), South Korea (16th) in its group with Vietnam (35th) who are a clear outside chance of even scoring a goal let alone earning a point at this tournament.
