Australia's James Troisi (right) celebrates with Mathew Leckie (left) and Massimo Luongo after scoring the winner for AustraliaHosts Australia won the Asian Cup after beating South Korea 2-1 in extra time of an electrifying final on Saturday, substitute James Troisi smashing home a dramatic winner. Troisi broke Korean hearts with the last kick in the first period of extra time after Son Heung-Min had snatched a dramatic injury-time equaliser at the end of normal time. Australia's triumph gave the Socceroos a first title since defecting from Oceania nine years ago, while South Korea's anguish continued after failing to break a hoodoo in the tournament stretching back to 1960. Australia, runners-up to Japan in 2011, had been on the brink of victory after a stunning strike from Massimo Luongo on the stroke of half-time, triggering wild celebrations from the waves of fans in green and gold in a crowd of 76,000.

Members of a special unit of the Ukrainian armed forces line up before departing to take part in a military operation, during a farewell ceremony in KharkivFighting raged in eastern Ukraine on Saturday as pro-Russian separatists sought to tighten the circle around government forces clinging on to a rail center, with 15 Ukrainian soldiers killed in the past 24 hours. Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak said separatists were keeping up intense pressure on Debaltseve, a major rail and road junction north-east of the big city of Donetsk, as well as on the neighboring town of Vuhlehirsk. "The toughest situation is in the Vuhlehirsk area where the terrorists are trying to seize the town and occupy positions to move forward and encircle Debaltseve," military spokesman Andriy Lysenko said in a separate briefing.
