The league has its ups and downs. It allows our players to play alongside very good foreigners, but the problem is that its come down to the point where they carry the team and all the Chinese players are just there for support. Take those foreigners away and then they don't know how to attack. I think part of the reason we lost is due to the fact that we continue to rely on long balls rather than short passing. Syria did well to press to prevent us from playing the ball on the ground.
