Japan, Australia tied at 0-0 after 60 minutes

Japan defender Maya Yoshida cleared off the line to prevent Australia from taking the lead as the two teams remained deadlocked at 0-0 one hour into their Asian Cup final on Saturday.
Defender Luke Wilkshire sent a floating cross into the area in the 49th. Japan's goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima misjudged the flight of the ball and it bounced off the far post to fall before rebounding off Tim Cahill, but Maya Yoshida cleared off the line.
The Australians raised their hands believing the ball had crossed the line but replays showed it didn't.
Both teams had their chances in a fast-flowing first half.
