Q: What Happen to China Football Team?

I like to watch football. But felt bored after watching China football team did not shoot after more then 60 minutes. Anyone can explain the logic here?

From what I understand the Chinese soccer team has always been a disappointment.

 

I've heard severals reasons why over the years... 

 

:guanxi - those who get picked for the teams have well connected fathers but are not necessarily the best players.

:Chinese kids not having the time or places to go and kick around a ball after school with their friends. Homework is more important to most parents.

: Corruption

:Lack of social sport clubs, if you want coaching it'll be very expensive.

 

I'd guess it's a combination of these.

The soccer players are required to run after only one ball for the whole 90 minutes ... surprise

I think, that is the biggest problem ... laugh

 

When I was a kid, we each had one ball ...

My biggest problem was being born with two left feet....

It sounds much nicer and not as offensive when you say:

"This player has two left feet ...", i.e. can't play soccer wisely ...
