Yang Qian not satisfied despite big win over Myanmar

Chonburi: Yang Qian wants more goals despite hitting a brace in China PR’s 5-1 win over Myanmar in their AFC U-19 Women’s Championship Thailand 2019 group B tie on Thursday.

Yao Mengjia gave China a slim lead going into the break, but Yang Qian’s brace subsequently settled the nerves as the former champions bounced back in style from their Matchday One defeat to Korea Republic.

Group B: Myanmar vs China PR

"Actually, I'm not really satisfied with my performance today because I think I could have scored more, apart from the two goals,” declared Yang.

“But we have the three points in the bag, and we are happy."

Park Tae-ha’s charges are currently third in the Group B standings and will only be assured of progressing to the next round of the competition if they beat Japan next and the Korea Republic versus Myanmar tie ends in a draw or a win for the latter.

"Yes, the next match [against Japan] is going to be a tough game for us. We all know the Japanese team are quite strong, but we will be ready for them and will work hard to win,” said Yang.

“It’s an honour to represent China at the U-19 level. We are proud of our country and will do our best to advance into the next round.”
