Tonight we can say Adelaide could be the best team in Asia. They beat a team worth maybe 6 times as much, full of well capped internationals. In the second half Adelaide was too good.
They still have to not concede in the away leg. But the A-League has come of age.
The AFL, union and league. Sorry boys. On a world scale, minor. Poorly paid, not followed.
But Adelaide. Part of the world game. Australians demonstrating that they can mix it with the world's best in the world's most competitive sport. Get with the program.
