The Young Matildas, Australia's women's soccer youth team, lost to their Chinese counterparts 2-1 in an Asian Under-19 Championship tie in Wuhan on Monday night. And if that wasn't enough, there was an all-in brawl after full-time with spectators pelting the Aussies with bottles.

Michael Cockerill from the Sydney Morning Herald picks up the story. While the CCTV news report focuses on the Glorious Chinese Victory, the picture slideshow on their website leaves little doubt which side they believe was at fault.
