Yesterday was a fantastic occasion for everyone involved with Hong Kong football. My Club Kitchee SC gave Arsenal an excellent game in front of a superb 40,000+ passionate fans at The Hong Kong Stadium.
We were very much the better side in the first half, playing our usual passing style & leading by 2 goals to 1 whilst limiting Arsenal's goal threat. The second half was more in favour of Arsenal but whenever you face such a quality opposition you expect to have spells in the game when they dominate. We held our lead until late on and eventually drew the game 2-2. This was an excellent advert for Football in Hong Kong and Asia.
With the game being beemed live to millions of viewers across the globe all of my mates, coaches and club officials should be proud of the way we displayed ourself.
