Comprehensive win for Republic of China as China are blown away

December 6, 2017

 

 

The opening goal of the contest came from Republic of China, as Yung-Chun Huang weaved his way through the China team, shifting the ball onto his left foot and firing the ball home past the helpless Xingseng Zhang.

 

Republic of China doubled their lead shortly thanks to Yung-Chin Huang again, as he doubled his tally for the afternoon. He found himself some space just inside the China half, again moved the ball well onto his left foot, beating Jaiwei Liu and rolling the ball into the bottom corner.

 

It was soon 3-0 as Yu-Hui Wen won the ball back on the edge of the opposition box, Anthony Huang poked the ball towards goal, and despite Zhang in the China goal making a superb block, Huang followed up at the second attempt to roll the ball into the empty net.

 

Anthony Huang soon doubled his tally with an absolute rocket. He drove down the right, cut inside on his stronger left foot and fired the ball into the far corner. The fifth goal followed thanks to a well worked team goal that was finished off by Tze-Ying Chen.

 

China did manage to pull a goal back before half time. Junlin Chen drove forward, slipped the ball through to the unmarked Zhiheng Chen and he toe-poked the ball through the legs of Odo Jacobs.

 

Half Time: China 1-5 Republic of China

 

The second half was only a minute old when Republic of China added their sixth, and Anthony Huang scored his hattrick. Yung-Chun Huang won back possession in the centre circle, and fed Anthony Huang down the right. He drove towards goal and side footed the ball low into the bottom corner.

 

Republic of China added a seventh goal, and it was a special moment for 10-year old Yuan-Chi Tsai, the youngest player of the tournament. He played a neat exchange with Shi-Chi Tsao from a corner, and fired a low drive towards the bottom corner. Despite a small deflection, I’m sure the youngster will be claiming that one.

 

Goal number eight soon followed as Ting-Yu Chang got in on the act, finishing off a well worked team goal.

China pulled another goal back midway through the second half. Jianfu Su dribbled his way into the box and found Zihao Wu in space and he finished well across the goalkeeper into the far corner.

 

The Republic of China further extended their lead with a superb strike from Jing-Teng Cheng followed by a fantastic turn and finish from Anthony Huang. Kau-Chen Su then added another before Yu-Chen Hung then got himself on the scoresheet.

 

With less than a minute to go, Jing-Teng Cheng scored another, followed by Yu-Chen Hung rounding off the scoring.

 

An impressive performance from the Republic of China who over-powered their opposition, running out comprehensive winners, making it 2 wins from 2 for them.

China Man of the Match: Jianfu Su - He caused Republic of China a few problems, carried the ball well and was always looking to get the ball down and play.
