Han Wenxia returns to national team

China's women's football team are training hard in Southern China's Guangzhou, the host city of the Four-Nation Invitational Tournament. The return of veteran Han Wenxia means China now have four goalkeepers at their disposal.

Goalkeeper Han Wenxia left the national team after the Asian Games. She didn't take part in training sessions in Kunming due to health problems. But her name remains on the national team's list. Meanwhile, the coach of the goalkeepers Ha Weisays Han Wenxia will recover completely in two weeks. But for now, young player Zhang Yanru will take her place as the main goalkeeper in the Four-Nation Invitational Tournament.

Some doubt whether Han Wenxia can keep up with the young players. But Ha Wei says Han Wenxia's rich experience will be very useful to the new recruits. And her presence will also strengthen the competition for the goalkeeper's seat.

The tournament will kick off on January the 26th.
