It was one of the best performances by the Matildas during the 2018 AFC Women's Asian Cup but despite the dominance, they went down 1-0 to Japan.
Australia came into the game with a point to prove after their scare against Thailand in the semifinal.
They started the game in a lively fashion and were given the golden opportunity as Japan's Saki Kumagai was called up for a handball in the box.
However, it wasn't a forward who stepped up to the spot but Elise Kellond-Knight and goalkeeper Ayaka Yamashita made the save.
Australia continued to pressure the Japanese defence but to no avail.
It was Japan who scored with a strike from Kumi Yokoyama and sealed back-to-back Asian Cups, the first since North Korea did it in 2001 and 2003.
How did Twitter react as Japan lifted the trophy for the second time?
