The U17-age China women’s football team is participating in the U17 Women’s World Cup in India, which has attracted the attention of domestic fans. Now, after two rounds, they have scored three points. Because the goal difference is at least ranked at the bottom of the group, the last round against the defending champion Spanish women’s football team can only advance to the World Cup quarter-finals if they win. It’s very difficult, and we still need to fight for it.
In addition, many international players of China Women’s Football Team, who play for the European League, have welcomed their respective leagues. In the fifth round of French women’s football team, Paris Saint-Germain defeated Dijon 3-1. Li Mengwen was replaced in the first half of this game, and Yang Lina didn’t come on as a substitute. Another overseas international, Zhang Linyan, had an outstanding performance, contributing a goal and helping on behalf of Cao Meng women’s football team. Finally, the team lost the opponent 4-5.
In the 6th round of Swiss Super Women’s League, Cao Meng women’s football team played against Basel women’s football team at home. In the first 2 minutes, Cao Meng women’s football team took a 1-0 lead, then continued to score in the 6th and 15th minutes, rewriting the score to 3-1, and made a fantastic start. Unexpectedly, the defense line of Cao Meng women’s football team suddenly and quickly collapsed, losing four goals in the 17th, 19th, 55th and 69th minutes, and at one time falling behind 3-5.
In the 70th minute, Zhang Linyan, a 21-year-old talent of China women’s football team, made a stunning performance. After stealing in the frontcourt, she scored the fourth goal for the team and was finally reversed 4-5.
In addition to her single-handed goal in the second half, Zhang Linyan assisted her teammates to score the third goal in the second half. She played the whole game in the first round and contributed one goal and one aid.
This is Zhang Linyan’s first season abroad. Before that, she represented the official debut of Cao Meng women’s football team, contributing a goal and three assists to help the team beat its opponents 10-0.
This summer, Zhang Linyan joined Cao Meng Women’s Football Team on loan from Wuhan Women’s Football Team for one year. Last year, Zhang Linyan fought in the second-level league in China, and now she is one of the cores of China women’s football team. She has completed her crazy transformation, which brings good news to coach Shui Qingxia.
On October 22nd, the 2023 Women’s World Cup will be held in groups, and the group opponents of China women’s football team will be determined accordingly. As long as the overseas international players like Zhang Linyan perform better and better, China women’s football team can be fearless of any opponents.
