Cameron Burgess will return to Ipswich Town after Australia were knocked out of the Asian Cup by South Korea.

The Socceroos reached the quarter-finals of the tournament and looked likely to progress, with Craig Goodwin's strike handing them the lead shortly before half time.

Cameron Burgess, who started off as a substitute, was brought on with five minutes to go, but Jurgen Klinsmann's men got themselves back into the game in the sixth minute of stoppage time as Lewis Miller brought down Son Hueng-min in the box.

Wolves forward Hwang Hee-chan, who scored against Town in the Carabao Cup earlier this season, dispatched the spot kick, equalising at the death.

Australia quickly collapsed, with Son scoring a free-kick to put his team ahead in the 103rd minute before Aiden O'Neill was sent off for a strong tackle on Hwang just seconds later.

There was no way back for Graham Arnold's side at that point, while South Korea moved on to the semi-finals, where they'll face Jordan.

The result means that Burgess will be expected back in Suffolk next week ahead of Town's clash against West Brom at Portman Road on Saturday, February 10th (12:30pm).

Aside from today's cameo against South Korea, his only minutes in the Asian Cup came in a 1-0 win against Syria in the second group stage game, where he played the full 90 minutes. He was left as an unused substitute in the other three matches.

George Edmundson has filled in at left centre-back in his absence, winning Ipswich's Player of the Month vote for January.
