VIDEO: look back at the vital moments that delivered Australia the country’s first major international trophy on a pulsating night of action.

    SHORTLY after 8.15 last night, Serena Williams was buckled over with her head buried in a towel.

    ANGE Postecoglou said he never lost faith in his side, despite South Korea temporarily looking like spoiling the Socceroos’ Asian Cup party in the final.

    EACH member of the Sydney Sixers’s Big Bash final XI has been fined $500 and captain Moises Henriques suspended for one match after falling foul of cricket’s crackdown on slow over rates.

    THE Socceroos are the champions of Asia, James Troisi’s extra time goal securing a thrilling victory over Korea Republic. Re-live the action.
