    Awal is Muslim and currently it is Ramadan. He probably went to bed early as he needs to wake up before dawn the next day to eat.

    We drew against Turkmenistan at home so we have at least one point.

    I'm torn on Everton. On one hand, his vision, technique and pace are unmatched on this team and without him, we would struggle to create anything.

    On the other hand, he's a very selfish player in attack and doesn't track back to defend. Replacing him with Poon Pui is a downgrade overall, but at least he will pass the ball and prevent Yue Tze from being isolated in 2v1 situations at the back.

    Unfortunately this sums up HK football and the HK team most of the time, there will always be some sort of give and take.

    I think Jorn goes with Everton everytime, and rightfully so, because there is always a small small chance each match that Everton can hit a wonder goal, or use his speed to create something. As long as that chance exists, Jorn will play him, because so few other players have that ability to create something out of nothing.

    I feel that Jorn Andersen has yet to find a good strike force even though he now has Michael, Juninho, Everton and Stefan Perreira. He said he needs them, but he can't get them to combine well and we are still not getting any goals.

    If Hong Kong loses then we most probably will not progress to the next round. But then this was kind of expected.

    Well after last night's result, the loss meant that Jorn's team will not be heading in to the next stage of the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.

    But they will have the opportunity to possibly qualify for the 2027 AFC Asian Cup finals as they advanced to the third round stage which is going to be really hard to predict the chances of the national team qualifying for another edition of the AFC Asian Cup.

    Really depends on which Pot we're in for the draw and of course, the subsequent draw results.

    Kitchee could only settle for a point as Kim Dong Jin's side could not find a goal past Eastern.

    This year's East Asian Cup qualifying round will be held in Kaohsiung, Taiwan in November or December. Hong Kong lost its bid to host it. Seven countries/regions will be divided into two groups and play for the one slot to join Japan, South Korea and China in the finals.

    Next year's finals will be held in South Korea in July, followed by 2028 Jan in China and 2030 Jan in Japan.

    Philip Lee made an outburst amongst Yumemi Kanda in which he accused him of not wanting to play with the Koreans, but to play with his compatriots that saw his Rangers side lose to Tai Po.

    However, Kanda responded to Lee's remarks. "In football, it is pretty usual for players and coaching staff to exchange views. The final decision, however, is always on the coach. I have never thought of not wanting to use Korean players."

    In addition, Eastern who drew against Kitchee in yesterday's fixture are unsatisfied with the lack of VAR decisions that included a penalty opportunity when Sedin Ramic appeared to had handled the ball in the penalty area.

    Also having watched the highlights, there were a number of questionable decisions made by the referee that include Helio and Law Tsz Chun's fouls.
