AFC President challenges UAE to match Aussies Asian Cup feat

Asian Football Confederation President Shaikh Salman bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa admits that United Arab Emirates have a huge task in front of them to match the success of January's AFC Asian Cup when they host the 2019 edition. 

The UAE was awarded the hosting rights to the 17th edition of the continental championship on Monday, beating off the challenge of Iran.

It will be the second time that the Emiratis have staged the Asian Cup, having hosted the 1996 edition where they made the final, losing...

FIFA president Sepp Blatter: Iran must end intolerable stadium ban on women

FIFA presidential candidate Luis Figo says nothing will change if Sepp Blatter wins a fifth term in charge of football's governing body.
FIFA presidential candidate Michael van Praag talks about his campaign to win votes from South American countries at the CONMEBOL conference.
FIFA presidential candidate Michael van Praag said he would ensure full disclosure of Michael Garcia's report into the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups and have a 40-team World Cup if he is elected in May.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter has called on Iran to end its "intolerable" ban on women watching football matches.

Iran is bidding against the United Arab Emirates to host the 2019 Asian Cup, but Reuters reports that the ban on women attending men's sporting events in the country will likely damage their chances of being chosen as tournament hosts.

Iran's footballers were threatened with punishment by the Iranian Football Federation for posing for "selfies" with female supporters during the Asian Cup...

World Cup hero Aloisi happy to become Australia's yesterday man

John Aloisi converted the penalty against Uruguay in 2005 that took the Socceroos through to their first World Cup appearance in 32 years.

Australia's breakthrough Asian Cup victory means that John Aloisi no longer has the honour of being the hero of the nation's most famous football moment. And the former La Liga striker couldn't be happier.

In November 2005, Aloisi converted the decisive penalty kick against two-time world champions, Uruguay, that took the Socceroos through to their first World Cup appearance in 32 years.

At the same venue in Sydney last Saturday, Australia defeated South Korea 2-1 in the 2015 Asian Cup final --...

Runners-up South Korea receive a hero's welcome on Asian Cup return

ESPN FC's Jason Dasey and Gary Phillips react to reports that nations within the Asian Football Confederation want to evict Australia, but Phillips argues the Aussies have raised the standard within the AFC ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

SEOUL, South Korea -- When South Korea returned home after collecting just one point at last year's World Cup, fans in Seoul heckled the players and offered the local insult of pelting them with candy.

On Sunday evening, just 24 hours after losing a thrilling Asian Cup final 2-1 to Australia in Sydney, South Korea's players arrived back at the same Incheon International Airport to be greeted in a much friendlier fashion after local media called for flowers and not candy -- two words that rhyme in...

Australia hosted not the best, but the most significant Asian Cup ever

ESPN FC's Jason Dasey and Gary Phillips delve deeper into Australia's AFC Asian Cup glory, following their emotional 2-1 extra-time win over South Korea.

The 2015 Asian Cup was a very good tournament. It could even be argued that it was great, which inevitably leads to talk of whether it was the greatest ever. Such debates are common. Had recent World Cups been more entertaining and exciting, there would have been global arguments as to whether they were number one. It almost happened for Brazil in 2014, only to be stopped after the knockout rounds failed to live up to the early promise.

Yet in Australia, the tournament started well and then just...
