Thailand thrash China 5-1

Real Madrid v Osasuna - La Liga

Hefei, China -  Poor possession and team work and most of all no fighting spirit resulted in the most humiliating defeat for years for China’s national football team as they lost 1-5 to visiting Thailand Saturday.

Jose Camacho kept most of the usual starters on bench for the match but he soon found out that he lost control of the Chinese team in the first 25 minutes as his team was already 0-2 behind due to poor defence and casual mistakes.

The Spanish coach immediately made three substitutions and that proved effective as forward Yu Dabao charged forward and forced a penalty which was converted by Wang Yongbo (32nd minute). The goal inspired China only for a small while.

The Thai team, which also left some of their star players at home, took full advantage of their opponents’ absent-mindedness, and quickly enlarged the gap to 3-1 before the interval and the goal turned out to be the last straw for China.

Camacho made two further replacements in the second half only to see his team falling apart and conceding two more goals and the once very successful coach had to swallow the bitter defeat.

The defeat was the third consecutive loss within a month for China as they had lost to Uzbekistan 1-2 and the Netherlands 0-2.

The loss will surely cast shadows on Camacho’s prospect as China’s coach as near the end of the match, local fans chanted “resign, resign” to express their resentment. Some fans might still remember the match in August 2011, also played here. In that match, China beat Jamaica 1-0. But after the win, the then China coach Gao Hongbo was removed from the post and Camacho was made his successor.

After nearly two years in-charge, Camacho hasn’t achieved any noteworthy success.
