    A winner mentality, if nothing else. Will win a few more matches that would otherwise end in a draw and draw a few more matches that would otherwise end in a small loss.

    But given the current state of Chinese soccer, with its fundamental lack of infrastructure and real participation, would this be enough to make a material difference? I can only say I'm at most cautiously optimistic.

    1-0 HT. Not bad at all.

    Small lead at HT in must-win game, now is the time a coach like Lippi works his magic.

    Korea attacking well for the first minutes in the second half.

    50', China got a pretty good chance. Zhang Linpeng is the bright spot.

    68', great run by China. Zhang Linpeng started it again. Wu Xi's shot was just a little soft. No goal.

    Yu Dabao out. Cramps. Not a good sign. Fatigue may become a factor for Team China. A great game by him both attacking and defending.

    Zhang Yuling in.

    Gave up two corners in a roll. Goal post saved China, or was it Wu Xi?

    Wu Xi.

    81'.

    China is lost that contest in the box easily. Fatigue.

    83', plus 1 for Zeng Cheng again.

    86', bad place to give up a fk by Zhang Zhipeng. Zeng Cheng saved the day again.

    87', Korea fouled. Threat averted.

    The fans are cool. The CCTV5 commentators are a lot better than the guys before too.

    Great result for China! Hail Lippi!

    Zeng Cheng or Feng Xiaoting for man of the match. Both outstanding today.

    If we can snatch a win or draw against Iran on Tuesday then we may have a shot at the playoff spot thanks to Syria stealing a win against Uzbekistan

    If you can perform the same in front of 80k opponent fans and against Iran. That is a big if. Iran is getting ready for a serious match since winning China literary means we can lay back and watch the rest of WCQs as friendly games to test our younger talents in our B and C teams.

    Good luck and congrats on your victory. Winning S.Korea is an achievement for a team like China.
