Matildas lose to Japan 1-0 in AFC final

LAST UPDATED // Monday, 26 May 2014 14:18

Japan demonstrated why they are one of the world's top football teams, defeating Australia in the AFC Women’s Asian Cup final on Sunday evening.

Japan took the lead in the first-half of the match and although the Aussies dominated in the second half, they weren't able to score a goal in order to force the game into extra time.

With a little over 12 months until the World Cup finals in Canada, Australia will use the lessons they have learnt from the tournament in Vietnam to improve.

"Hopefully by the time we reach the World Cup next year we can improve that little bit more in our execution and beat those big countries," interim Matildas head coach Alen Stajcic said.
