From China Daily:
The future looks so dim for China’s national soccer team even the fans have lost faith.
“We are numb. We have no tears anymore,” said one anonymous comment on Sina.com after China’s woeful 2-1 loss to Iraq at home eliminated it from the 2010 World Cup.
“We do not see any hope for China’s soccer. We doubt whether China will be able to make it to the World Cup finals again any time in the foreseeable future.”
