7:20 am on 15 January 2011

Australia and South Korea showed why they are tipped to meet in the final of football's Asian Cup in just over two weeks when they fought out a classy 1-all draw in their second Group C match in Qatar.

Koo Ja-cheol fired Korea ahead midway through the first half and Mile Jedinak headed Australia level midway through the second to clinch a draw that left both managers happy.

The two sides top Group C with four points from two matches ahead of India and Bahrain and both are virtually certain to go through to the quarter-finals next week.
