The final victory – achieved by overturning a 2-0 half-time deficit – capped a stunning campaign from the Steel Roses, who also shocked Japan en route to reclaiming a trophy they had last won in 2006. Having dominated the early editions of this competition, China’s record overall tally of Asian titles now stands at nine – three times that of any other nation.
