China complains over disallowed ‘goal’


BEIJING: Chinese football authorities have lodged a complaint over a disallowed “goal”, reports said on Friday, after a 0-0 draw with Hong Kong left their World Cup qualifying hopes hanging by a thread. China has protested over Yu Dabao’s shot late in Tuesday’s game, which appeared to cross the line before Hong Kong goalkeeper Yapp Hung-fai clawed it back, the official Xinhua news agency said. The goalless draw in front of Hong Kong’s jubilant fans left China third in their group with two games left and struggling to reach the next round of qualifiers for Russia 2018.
