    India 4:1 Macau

    Macau clearly ran out of gas in the second half. They need experience and this is good experience for them. It is good to see them score a goal.

    Leong Ka-Hang has still to recover from operation, if he, Duarte and Edgar Teixiera can return for the home match against Kyrgyzstan then they may actually get a home win.

    FOOTBALL – AFC ASIAN CUP | MACAU DEFEATED 4-1 BY INDIA AFTER STRONG START

    Macau was defeated 4-1 by India last night in their AFC Asian Cup qualifying match at Bangalore’s Sree Kanteerava Stadium, building on the 2-0 rout of Macau in the match’s first leg on September 5.

    The two national teams were tied 1-1 at half-time – a strong start for the local underdogs – after goals by India’s Rowllin Borges and Macau’s Nicholas Torrão.

    According to football analysts, Torrão’s 38th-minute goal took advantage of a lapse in the Indian defense. The two defenders guarding Torrão reacted late to a cross into the Macau footballer, and a deflection off one of the Indian players secured the goal.

    But the stamina of the Macau team appeared to run dry as the second half went on and the team conceded three goals in the 60th, 71st, and 91st minutes during a prolonged Indian attack, that left the Macau team increasingly demoralized.

    The result is the second worst defeat for Macau in this year’s qualifier rounds since its 4-0 loss to Myanmar on June 13.

    India, ranked 107 in the world, has defeated all of its group’s challengers so far in the latest AFC Asian Cup qualifier round; namely Kyrgyzstan (128), Myanmar (157) and now Macau (182 on the FIFA ranking).

    Macau lost both of its first leg matches against Kyrgyzstan (0-1) and Myanmar (0-4) and is due to play the second legs on November 14 and March 27, 2018, respectively.

    After last night’s victory, India has guaranteed its ascension into the AFC Asian Cup Finals competition, standing on a total of 12 points, the maximum possible given the number of games thus far played. Kyrgyzstan and Myanmar both have four points apiece and will now compete for the second qualifier spot.

    As of last night’s results, there remains a slim possibility that Macau can still qualify for the Finals competition. DB

    A bit of an old news, but 17 year old Macau goalkeeper Lee Wa-Si, currently with Macau Development Team, has signed for Clube Desportivo das Aves in Portugal. He has gone on trial with them for two weeks. As he is still only 17 he will stay in Macau for one year and join them when he turns 18 next year.

    15 year old McArthur will also join the club. He currently plays for Casa de Portugal in the Macau 2nd division.

    Seiji Saito has joined Macau club Chao Pak Kei. He is reported to have signed a one year contract which will include the 11-a-side league season from January.

    I think he is the second Japanese player to play in the Macau league after Dan Ito.

    Benfica Macau has won the 7-a-side Macau Invitation Cup, achieving the treble. (League, FA Cup and 7-a-side Cup.) Striker Nikki Torrao was asked about the hectic schedule the club will face next season, playing in the league, FA Cup and AFC Cup at the same time period. He said he believes it will be a huge challenge but he also believes in the club's strength in depth, they will prove that they are the best club in Macau on the field.

    They WILL play two North Korean sides. I cannot imagine a North Korean side losing to a Mongolian club.

    Well, at leaast Benfica Macau gets to play in an Asian club competition. It is new to them and will be very good experience for Macau players.

    Monte Carlo will play with an all Chinese squad in 2018. They have signed a deal with Xinjiang Tianshan Snow Leopard and Macanese players could in future move to the Chinese club.

    BENFICA DE MACAU KICKS OFF SEASON HIGHLIGHTING AFC CUP

    [​IMG]

    The Benfica de Macau football team will be participating in three different competitions this year. Aside from the regular Macau’s Elite League Championship and the Macau Football Association (MFA) Cup, Benfica will be involved in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Cup, an annual international association football competition between Asian domestic clubs in Asia.
    At a press conference held yesterday by the club at OneTwo sports apparel shop in central Macau, the team administrator, Duarte Alves, noted that the participation of the Macau team in the Asian competition is a “unique opportunity.” Alves noted that 2018 will be the only year where a direct entry to the group stage will be granted to a local team, as “for 2019, we already have the information that due to Macau’s ranking, the local team that wins the championship [Elite League] will have to play a preliminary playoff stage in order to access the [main] competition.”

    Alves also highlighted, “this will be the first time [and the last] that a Macau team will participate with direct entry to a competition of this level.” This participation is the main novelty for the season, representing an important challenge for the team. As Alves said, “it represents participation in a competition at a higher level than the one that we are used to here in Macau – a lot more competitive. We say this, but obviously we are going to give our best to obtain the best possible result.”

    However, he added that the competition will be strong and very experienced, including many players that are used to representing their national teams in World Championships.

    “We are well aware of what we can expect [to find] and we will give it our best,” he concluded.

    Club goals for the other two competitions have been long established. Alves mentioned, “to be five-time champions of the Macau league and to renew the title of MFA Cup are always the [team’s] objectives.”

    To achieve these goals, the team has strengthened its lineup with the hiring of a few new players, while retaining the core squad. Leading the team is also a new coach, Bernardo Tavares from Portugal, who already has experience in AFC competitions, most notably in 2015, when he led the Al-Nahda Club from Oman in the competition.

    LOCAL CHAMPIONS MAY PLAY TWICE IN NORTH KOREA

    On the sidelines of the event, the Times questioned Alves on the opponents.
    The 4.25 Sports Club, which Benfica will have to play, is from North Korea and this might mean that the match is played in North Korean territory.

    He responded, “everything points in that direction. Only if there is no way to travel to the country, whether the country is at war or it does not authorize our entry, or even if the Macau SAR does not authorize our travel to the country (as happened before in the game between Malaysia and DPR Korea), the match needs to be played on a neutral field [otherwise it is played in two legs; one in each country or region].”

    The Benfica team manager also said, “when I was in Malaysia for the workshop and draw, I asked that question and I was told that it should be played [normally].”

    But the match with 4.25 Sports Club might not be the only one to be played in North Korea. The East Asian Group in which Benfica Macau has been placed also features Hang Yuen from Taiwan, and possibly another North Korean team, Hwaebul.

    Hwaebul, second in the North Korean Championship, still have a playoff game with Mongolia champions Erchim in order to determine the last of the group of four. The playoff match will take place next month.
