Chinese netizens and football fans are venting their anger against the Chinese national men's football team, with some even calling for their dismissal, after watching the outstanding performances of the nation's neighbors' teams in the 2010 South African World Cup, an online survey said.

In the first round of the games, Japan beat Cameroon 1-0 and South Korea won over the Greeks 2-0.

At the games in Johannesburg, South Africa, the North Korean team, which returned to the World Cup after 44 years, lost in a close-scoring game, 1-2, to the Brazilians, a team that is a five-time world champion. The Chinese football team also faced the Brazilians in a World Cup game eight years ago, but lost with a score of 0-4.

During the Johannesburg games, Jong Tae Se, forward of North Korean team, cried over his national pride when his national anthem was played.

The tears of Jong, who reportedly earns only 12 yuan ($1.76) per month, touched the hearts of many football fans watching the game.

A number of Chinese football fans contrasted some Chinese players to Jong, protesting that some of the Chinese players don't deserve to play for the country.

Young netizens and fans last week made sharp comments at kaixin.com - the Chinese version of Facebook - in a forum titled, "Should the Chinese national men's football team be dismissed?"

As of Sunday, more than 50,000 people voted, with more than 97 percent in support of sacking the entire team.

Meanwhile, only about 1,500 supporters said "no" to the question.

dismissed? throw them in jail for being lazy?

These useless spoiled brats bring nothing but embarrassment and shame to a country of 1.3 billion, who cannot even find 11 decent football player to field. China will never ever make it to the WC, let alone advance beyond the initial round. Chinese men are lazy and greedy. They cannot endure hardship...and as parents, Chinese people will not allow their children to pursue football, but instead lock their kids in rooms so that they will have to study all the time for the entrance exam. There are lots of reasons for the awful state of Chinese foootball...and it's social/economic and educational in nature. China is not meant to play football, so you all might as well just give up and enjoy other nations' teams.

Perhaps they should do as Rayan air gonna do.
For non performing footballers, you'll fly "stand up' only.
Installing pedals would be a leg strenghting training to reduce muscle injuries during a game.
Perhaps the charge for UK players could be reduced to 50 p since pedal power would feed into the planes turbines.
Of course  David B. would be excluded from such a ruling and remain seated

Chinese needs to have long term vision(patience)

Coach Gao Hong Bo is heading right direction focusing on the undefeatable team characteristics (defence first & attack later).

I believe China's team only needs to have 3 very responsible offensive skillful players only. (They could be Hao Jun Ming, Deng Zhuo Xiang, Gaolin, Yu Hai, Qu Bo, etc)
