Chinese players, from left to right, Shao Jiayi, Wang Dong and Sun Xiang walks off the pitch after their 0-3 defeat to Uzbekistan during their 2007 AFC Asian Cup Group C soccer match in Shah Alam outside Kuala Lumpur July 18, 2007.
They were unlucky to not get through... Had they held on longer against Iran they they would've been through. They held Iran who made it to the WC to a 2-2 draw and looked odds on to win it until the last 15-20 of that match.
I didn't really see the Uzbek game but they lost out in the very last 10 minutes so it wasn't too bad an effort I suspect...
most of you take our national team wrong . they didn't win beacuse they don't want to win . they know many areas in our country are flooded so they want to save money to the people in the flooded areas .
