South Korea have dominated the opening match of football's East Asian Cup against Australia but had to be content with a 0-0 draw as they failed to capitalise on the numerous chances they created during the one-sided affair.

The four-nation event in Seoul is organised by the East Asian Football Federation and features three teams who have booked their tickets from Asia for the 2014 World Cup -- South Korea, Australia, and Japan - as well as holders China.
