US beat China 1-0 in Four Nations warm-up football match
« on: January 24, 2007, 09:31:47 AM »
The Chinese and US women's football teams are training hard for the Four-Nation Invitational Tournament in the southern city of Guangzhou. And in a warm-up match on Tuesday, the US beat China 1-0.

The US team arrived in Guangzhou last week, nine days ahead of the Four-Nation Tournament.

Since this was just a warm up match, China were able to give twenty players a chance to play on Tuesday.

With no powerful attacks, the match proceeded tediously. In the second half, the US headed the ball into the goal, sealing the score 1-0.

After the match, tactical consultant Eckhard Krautzun gave his opinion on the Chinese team.

It would have been better if they could have told us what Eckhard's opinion actually was.  :)
