Asian Cup 2011: Alberto Zaccheroni Pleased With Decisive Tactical Switch In Japan’s Australia Win

Japan coach Alberto Zaccheroni has admitted that he was pleased that a second half switch played a major role in the Samurai Blue’s 1-0 Asian Cup final victory over Australia.

In the early part of the second period, Japan appeared to be buckling under the Socceroos’ aerial ability in attack, but the Italian coach successfully reshuffled his men.

The story is too old to be commented.
