“Team and I are disappointed”.

China had a 2-2 draw with Singapore in the third Group C match of the second Asian qualifying round for the 2026 FIFA North and Central America World Cup held at The National Stadium in Singapore on the 21st (Korea time). China scored two goals first and led, but allowed Singapore to score two goals.

As a result, China had one win, one draw and one loss, the same point as Thailand, which drew with South Korea on the same day, but remained third in the group due to a loss in goal difference. Singapore lost 1-3 to Thailand at home after losing 0-5 in an away match to South Korea earlier, but gained its first point against China, setting the stage for a turnaround.

On the day, China led the way with Wu Lei’s first goal at the 10th minute of the first half. Wu Lei even got a penalty kick in the 31st minute of the first half to score an additional goal, but was blocked by the goalkeeper. Wu Lei scored an additional goal to recover from the missed penalty kick in the extra time of the first half, leaving China with a 2-0 lead.

However, China allowed Paris Ramley to catch up in the eighth minute of the second half and even lost the tying goal in the 36th minute of the second half, causing the team to collapse. Coincidentally, both goals were due to errors by national team captain Zhang Linfeng. Paris’ shot deflected off Zhang Linfeng’s foot and went into the Chinese goalpost in the eighth minute of the second half.

On top of that, Zhang only wasted the 36th minute of the second half to kick the ball out of a chaotic situation in front of the goalpost. Not missing it, Jakub Mahler, who was right in front of him, scored the tying goal. It was the worst game for a veteran.

Chang Lin-feng, who is also the captain of the national team, had an interview with Mix Zone after the match against Singapore. In particular, he declared his retirement in front of Chinese reporters, who was the cause of the loss. In a way, it was expected to be Zhang Lin-feng, who was born in 1989, but what he left in the interview was heartbreaking.

Zhang is a center back, but mostly comes as a fullback for the Chinese national team. Though it is difficult to defend on the side due to his old age, he was beaten by fast defenders who came out as a side defender again at a time when there was no replacement for fullbacks. In the end, this affected his decision to retire. 퀸알바

“First of all, I was disappointed that I did not lead the team well as a captain,” said Zhang Linfeng, a former captain of China. “After the game, I agonized for a long time. Now I think I have to retire as a national team member,” he said. “Singapore also failed to win. Personally, it is difficult and I am sad for the team as well.”

Zhang is currently with the Chinese national team, but his participation in the fourth game is uncertain. “First of all, Zhang is in Tianjin with other players. However, if he remains at that rate, he is highly likely not to be able to play due to mental problems,” Chinese Zubo Dotcom said.
