KUNMING, China, Oct. 12 (Xinhua) -- Jia Xiuquan, head coach of the Chinese women's national football team, has expressed confidence that his team can beat South Korea in next year's qualifying playoff to secure a berth in the Tokyo Olympics.
After the loss, Tianjin, Hebei and Wuhan remained the last three teams on the table; they have not won a game since the season started.
Honda, who joined the Rio de Janeiro club in February, capitalized on an errant clearance from goalkeeper Luan Polli to lash an unstoppable 20-yard shot into the top left corner.
"I also had a lot of days in my recovery when I wondered how I was going to play football again, but there were also good days that I'll never forget, such as starting to walk and it not hurting and then being able to run and in my first game back I scored after just 25 seconds."
"Coutinho playing inside [left] was a modification," Tite said. "Firmino today was not the Firmino that plays for Liverpool. He was playing on the last line without trying to be involved all the time. That put him in a position to take his opportunities when they came. He scored two goals and could have had two more. It shows that we have players that can adapt depending on the situation." Enditem
"We will add new blood," he said. "The door of the national team is always open to those who are in good form and willing to fight, no matter they are teenagers or experienced players."
It seems inevitable for Loew to set up strict guidelines and deliver results in the remaining four internationals in 2020.
"We are well aware of the fans' expectation and will fight to make them happen," Skocic was quoted as saying.
Also on Sunday, helped by four players scoring in double digits, Sichuan defeated Henan 89-62. Enditem
"It means the world," the all-time leading scorer of the Women's Chinese Basketball Association (WCBA) league told Xinhua in an exclusive interview.
"We are not a strong side. After playing such an intense game, we can improve in mentality and carrying out tactics," Wuhan coach Li Xin commented. Enditem
