Chelsea win Barclays Asia Trophy

Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas can look forward to the new Premier League season with confidence after his side won the Barclays Asia Trophy with a 2-0 win over Aston Villa in the final. Chelsea had started their pre-season with unconvincing victories but managed to put together a dominating display last night at Hong Kong stadium. In front of a crowd of almost 39,000 fans, Josh McEachran opened the scoring for Chelsea in just over 30 seconds from the first whistle. In the second half, Fernando Torres came on as a substitute and doubled the advantage for Chelsea in the 58th minute. Villa, on the other hand, was difficult to find a way to past Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech. Earlier, Goals from Mauro Formica, David Dunn and Nick Blackman helped Blackburn Rovers to beat Hong Kong champion Kitchee 3-0 and finish third in the Barclays Asia Trophy. "We played very well tonight. Perhaps it was because the opponents did not pressure us as hard as Chelsea did, so we could find more space to move and pass the ball," said Kitchee midfielder Huang Yang.


Hong Kong end hope of World Cup 2014

Saudi Arabia scored four goals in the last 20 minutes at Siu Sai Wan Sports Ground last night ended Hong Kong's hope to progress to the third qualifying round of 2014 World Cup. Saudi Arabia took a healthy three-goal cushion to Hong Kong following their first-leg win in Dammam and the Saudis extended their advantage when Hassan Fallatah scored in the 34th minute. Hong Kong held out until the 71st minute, when skipper Mohammed Noor scored from the spot after Hong Kong had been reduced to ten men with the sending-off of Leung Chun Pong. The Saudis numerical superiority told as the three-time AFC Asian Cup winners added three more goals. Nassir Al Shamrani, scorer of two in the first leg, made it 3-0 on the night just two minutes after Noor's penalty and Mohammed Al Sahlawi added the fourth in the 78th minute before Osama Hawsawi completed the win two minutes into stoppage time. "Our players lost of concentrate after Leung was sent off," Hong Kong coach Liu Chun-fai said. "Our players are inexperience in the international level. I hope this will be improved in the future."


Aston Villa face Chelsea in Asian Trophy final

Didier Drogba scored twice as Chelsea scored a comfortable 4-0 win over league champion Kitchee last night to set up a Barclays Asia Trophy final against Aston Villa. In front of a crowd 33,967 attendance, Chelsea dominated at a packed Hong Kong Stadium but had to wait until the 36th minute to open the scoring, when Frank Lampard converted from the penalty spot after Yossi Benayoun was brought down by Gao Wen. Solomon Kalou had earlier headed against the post following a brilliant cross from Drogba, who also had a shot saved late in the first half when his thundering free kick from 45 yards was blocked by goalkeeper Wang Shenpeng. Drogba scored four minutes into the second half from Florent Malouda's cross into the six-yard box. The Ivory Coast international netted his second in the 60th minute when he headed home another superb Malouda cross from close range. Second-half substitute Daniel Sturridge got Chelsea's fourth goal with a fine individual effort in the 77th minute. Kitchee head coach Joseph Gombau admitted his side had been thoroughly outplayed. "The Hong Kong league is not so strong ... you can't compare our side with Chelsea," he said. "We didn't see a lot of the ball but still it was a great experience and we learned a lot." In another match of the day, Darren Bent scored in the 50th minute to help Aston Villa edged Blackburn Rovers 1-0 and advanced to Saturday's deciding match in the four-team tournament.


South China appoint Kocian as new coach

South China have confirmed Jan Kocian will be the club's new coach next season. Kocian, the national team manager of Slovakia from 2006 to 2008, was sacked by Chinese Super League club Jiangsu Sainty in May after only five games. He will arrive next month to help revive South China after a disappointing season. "He has vast experience in Europe and was the national team manager of Slovakia and assistant team manager of Austria. We are impressed by many of his ideas, which will bring a new outlook for the team." said South China chairman Steven Lo. Kocian will pay special attention to his players' physical condition, which was called into question after South Korean coach Kim Pan-Gon left last December. The Slovak will also introduce more advanced training methods to the club. Lo would not disclose details of Kocian's salary, but it is believed his annual package is worth over one million Hong Kong dollar. "Our new budget will be reduced following the departure of the two former Premier League stars - Nicky Butt and Mateja Kezman, but it will still be over twenty million Hong Kong dollar in order to challenge for all domestic titles," said Lo.


Hong Kong crush out of Olympic qualifiers

Hong Kong crashed out of the 2012 Olympic Games qualifying tournament after losing to visitors Uzbekistan 2-0 in the return leg of their second-round match last night. An eighth-minute goal by Fozil Musaev, who also scored the only goal in the first leg at home on Sunday, gave Uzbekistan a two-goal advantage and an uphill task for the home side. Temurkhuja Abdukhaliqov then added to the tally 11 minutes later and fans at Hong Kong Stadium. Tai Po striker To Hon-to had a shot wide of target before the half-time whistle, and that was the best chance of the night for the home side. FA chairman Brian Leung hoped the players would not be affected by the result. "They are still young and have plenty room for improvement," said Leung. "I hope the clubs and fans will continue to give them support as they can still play for Hong Kong at other levels."
