Beijing: China cruised to the semi-finals in the AFC U-14 Girls Regional Championship 2013 for the East region after downing Korea Republic 5-0 at the Chinese National Football Training Centre on Wednesday.
Yan Yingying and subs Wang Yanwen scored a brace each for Lu Yiliang’s side with another substitute Chen Xia also getting on the score-sheet.
China are now top of the four-nation Group A having won all their two games and the win over the Koreans means they will finish in the top two and qualify for the semis on Friday regardless of the outcome of their last match against Guam on Thursday.
Lee Moon-seok’s Korean side are now on second spot and have to ensure they beat Northern Mariana Islands on Thursday to remain in that position and advance to the semis.
Group A standings as of Wednesday:
China – 6 points
Korea Republic – 3 points
Guam – 3 points
Northern Marina Islands – 0 points
