NO GOALS IN 3 GAMES’ CHINA LOSES TO QATAR 16TH ROUND IS A GLIMMER OF HOPE

The Chinese national soccer team suffered the bitter taste of defeat against defending champion Qatar without scoring a single goal in the group stage of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup.

Qatar defeated China 1-0 in the final match of Group A of the tournament held at the Khalifa International Stadium in Doha, Qatar on the 22nd (local time) thanks to Hassan Alhaydos’ winning goal in the 22nd minute of the second half.Qatar, with three wins in three games, easily passed the group stage as first place in the group.The four best-performing teams among the top 1st and 2nd place teams from each group and the 3rd place teams from each group will advance to the round of 16 of this tournament.On the other hand, China was unable to score a goal on this day and suffered a poor record of 2 draws and 1 loss.It has been 48 years since the 1976 tournament that China failed to win even a single game in the group stage.

However, a faint spark surrounding advancement to the round of 16 was left behind.Lebanon (1 draw, 2 losses, 1 point), who lost to Tajikistan in the game held at the same time, fell to the bottom of the group and was confirmed to be eliminated from the group stage.China, which finished 3rd in the group with a 1-point difference (2 points), has a number of options left to secure a ticket to the round of 16 by comparing its performance in the group stage with the 3rd-place team in other groups.However, because the points are low and there are no goals, China is at a disadvantage.Indonesia, currently ranked 3rd in Group D, and Bahrain, ranked 3rd in 카지노사이트킹 Group E, already have 3 points, which is higher than China.
