China's youth team grabbed a rare international soccer title after defeating host South Africa 3-1 to lift the Sesol Nations Cup on January 15.

Such an early victory in this new year will inject some vigor into the doldrums of Chinese soccer, which suffered an early exit last year during the group stage of the 2006 World Cup qualifiers.

Why the youth team can do such a great job,while the older one  just frustrated us again and again?
Is there some to do with the system of our soccer administration?
Is there some to do with our soccer league?

China seem to have some good young players coming through.  Even Du Wei :)  It's time the likes of Sun Jihai and Li Tie were put out to grass imho. Give the youngsters a chance, what have China got to lose?

  Chinese used to fill de facto older players to play games on adolescent level. It's very prevalent on all level of sports competition


This time there is a little difference:Our team's average age is there years younger than the others'.
But I do agree with you that quite a few players in China is older than the age writen down in their resume.

Creativity Vs Rigidity

The Young has no possession. The Old has possession.
The Young has vision. The Old has reality.
The Young has creativity. The Old has rigidity.
The Young are aggresive. The Old are defensive.

World Class Football require team defenses and aggresive/creative individual offenses.
