China loses to Tajikistan in international youth football tournament
Central Asia | sport | 13:26, 16 July 2016 | 1621

AKIPRESS.COM - football_goalTajikistan U-17 national football team beat China 1-0 thanks to a Vahdat Hanonov goal in the third and final round of the 2016 Silk Road Cup youth football tournament here on Friday, Xinhua reports.

Hanonov netted the lone goal in the 61st minute through a sharp counterattack. Hanonov, who showed martial arts when he scored two days ago, played 'bowling' with his teammates this time to celebrate the goal.

Enjoying the cheers of more than 21,000 supporters, China took an upper hand easily but could not convert on all 13 attempts. Statistics showed that China had 57 percent ball possession and 10 corners, but the solid defence of Tajikistan denied the hosts' willingness to win in the battle finally.

"We miss lots of chances in this match and we paid the price," said Wen Zhijun, the coach of China U-17 national football team.

In the other match, South Korea won over Turkmenistan 3-0 and claimed the title after three-match winning streak.
