China’s supporters were sleepless after their team drew Philippines for the first time in 104 years

The surprise draw in the Philippines at the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier made the Chinese public disappointed, even some got 'uneasy sleep'.

As a guest on the Philippines field at the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, the Chinese team continues to launch the strongest squad with the presence of a pair of attacking stars, Elkeson and Wu Lei. With the upper position, China is the ones who actively attacked and organized the citadel.

Delicious opportunities have been created. Even so, the Chinese attacking players missed it all. The match ended with a score without a goal.

A point against China not only helped the Philippines continue to have a chance at the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying race, but this match also helped them write a new milestone. Specifically, this is the first match in history that the Philippines did not lose to China in the two meetings.

This result is a miracle for the Philippines but also means shame for Chinese football, the media of the billion-people country has expressed infinite disappointment with the performance of Marcello Lippi's team.

Famous commentator Han Qiaosheng wrote on social media: "On uneven ground, the national team (China) was held 0-0 by the Philippines in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, they played too badly. I was not going to say anything until I realized this was the first time in 104 years that China couldn't beat the Philippines".
