[ASIAN CUP] Yoon Bit-Garam's overtime goal gave South Korea a 1-0 win over Iran and moved it into Tuesday's semifinals of the Asian Cup against archrival Japan. Australia's Socceroos also needed an overtime goal, from Harry Kewell, to dispose of defending champion Iraq, 1-0, on Saturday and move into the final four against Uzbekistan.

South Korea's win over Iran was a repeat of their match four years ago in the quarterfinals. The match marked the fifth straight time South Korea and Iran have met in the quarterfinals.

The star of the quarterfinals was Borussia Dortmund sensation Shinji Kagawa, who scored Japan's first two goals and set up Masahiko Inoha for a last-minute goal in its 3-2 win over host Qatar.

Uzbekistan beat Jordan, 2-1 thanks to a pair of goals by Ulugbek Bakaev to complete the final four.

    Maybe US Soccer will take a close look at Coach Afshin Ghitbi and tap his coaching talent as his sting with the Iran NT has obviously come to an end. Gee whiz Batman, we need his here not someplace else.... whys is that we tend to shoot ourselves in the foot and complain when we lose quality players, and now a guality coach to other countries/teams? Something is gravely wrong with this picture!
