Shoji wonder goal fires Japan to win vs. China in East Asian Championships

Japan's Vahid Halilhodzic has been experimenting with new players and combinations ahead of the 2018 World Cup.

Gen Shoji's outrageous strike from the edge of the centre circle put considerable gloss on another muted performance from World Cup-bound Japan as Vahid Halilhodzic's makeshift side secured a 2-1 win over China at the East Asian Championship in Tokyo on Tuesday evening.

Shoji's long-range attempt evaded Wang Dalei, despite the goalkeeper having a clear sight of the ball from the moment the central defender took aim, only for the shot to fly over his head to double Japan's lead with just three minutes...

Vitor Pereira replaces Villas-Boas as Shanghai SIPG coach

Vitor Pereira takes over from Andre Villas-Boas at Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG.

Shanghai SIPG have appointed Vitor Pereira to replace Andre Villas-Boas as head coach after the 49-year-old Portuguese was unveiled at a ceremony in Shanghai on Tuesday.

Pereira, who also succeeded Villas-Boas when he left Porto to take over at Chelsea in the summer of 2011, will be the latest coach to attempt to lead SIPG to the Chinese Super League (CSL) title.

SIPG finished second last season and also reached the final of the Chinese FA Cup and the semifinals of the AFC Champions League.

Japan coach Vahid Halilhodzic has set his sights on another two wins in the remaining matches at the East Asian Championship, despite questioning the quality of the squad at his disposal for this week's four-team competition.

The Japanese kicked off their campaign with a late and fortuitous 1-0 win over North Korea on Saturday evening when a deflected injury time strike from Yosuke Ideguchi saw off Jorn Andersen's determined side at Ajinomoto Stadium.

That win put the Japanese on top of the early...

Ideguchi goal in 94th minute helps Japan edge North Korea in Tokyo

The ESPN FC crew feel Group H is the most unpredictable with Poland, Senegal, Colombia and Japan making up the group.
Senegal will face Poland, Colombia and Japan in the 2018 World Cup group stages.

Japan had a late strike from Yosuke Ideguchi to thank for earning a fortuitous 1-0 win over North Korea on Saturday to put Vahid Halilhodzic's side on top of the early standings at the East Asian Championships.

Ideguchi's deflected effort in the 94th minute in front of just over 20,000 fans at Ajinomoto Stadium secured all three points for Japan. They move to the top of the standings after South Korea and China played out a 2-2 draw earlier in the evening.

The North Koreans were unfortunate not...

China coach Marcello Lippi names Yu Dabao captain for East Asian games

Melbourne Victory team manager Paul Trimboli talks about the 2018 AFC Champions League draw.

Former Benfica winger Yu Dabao has been named captain by China coach Marcello Lippi for the East Asian Championship in Japan in the absence of veteran midfielder Zheng Zhi.

Zheng, who is closing in on his 100th cap for China, was ruled out of the tournament due to a lingering injury at the end of the Chinese Super League season. That opened the way for Lippi to name Yu as captain for the four-team tournament.

"Considering that this competition is a post-season one and our core players are on holiday,...
