China routs Uzbekistan in Asian Cup

0

BRISBANE, Australia: High-flying China have emerged as the Asian Cup’s dark horses after their best start to the competition in 27 years emphatically put the cat among the pigeons. Twice runners-up, the Chinese have never won the continent’s showcase tournament but Wednesday’s explosive 2-1 comeback win over Uzbekistan in Brisbane saw them sweep into the quarterfinals and put the title favorites on red alert. China, who have secured top spot in Group B, may come back to earth with a bump as they face either hosts Australia or regional heavyweights South Korea in the last eight.
