Hearts duo Nathaniel Atkinson and Kye Rowles both started as Australia were knocked out of the Asian Cup in the quarter-finals by South Korea.

Australia took the lead in the first half when Atkinson's cross was volleyed home by Craig Goodwin.

However, Hwang Hee-chan scored from the spot in second-half injury time to send the match to extra-time, before Son Heung-min scored a delightful free-kick to send Jurgen Klinsmann's side through.
