HAIKOU, Nov. 21 (Xinhua) -- China drew 1-1 against Palestine in their 2018 CFA Team China International Football match here on Tuesday night.
Marcello Lippi, the head coach of the Chinese national football team, said at the post-match press conference that his team failed to seize the opportunities during the match. "There are too many mistakes," he said. "But I didn't blame my team."
Lippi pointed out that it's almost the end of the domestic season and the players were exhausted both physically and mentally. "I don't think we should hold a negative attitude to this result," he said.
It was the last warm-up match for the Chinese team this year. They will start a 40-day training camp from December 1.
