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?
Why was a player who has only scored once in 94 matches for the Matildas chosen to take a penalty for them in the final of a tournament? Does not make sense. #JPNvAUS #WAC2018— Athas Zafiris (@ArtSapphire) April 20, 2018

Kk missing the penalty was not the do or die for this game. We had chances we just could not utilise #JPNvAUS— sophie (@auswnt) April 20, 2018
When Twitter broke
Twitter going down was like watching the game with friends at a pub and said friends suddenly vanishing into thin air only to reappear 20 mins later— Marissa Lordanic 🤷♀️ (@marissalordanic) April 20, 2018
