Reporter Jin Cuo reports On October 31st, local time, Song Kai, the new president of China Football Association, appeared at the AFC Annual Awards Ceremony, which was his first visit since he took office. Song Kai’s move hoped to restart China’s football diplomacy and open up the situation.
In January this year, Du Zhaocai, then vice-chairman and secretary of the Party Committee of the Football Association, was elected as a director of FIFA, with 18 votes at the bottom, and was unable to be re-elected. Due to the special regulations of the AFC (only one election was allowed), China Football was "aphasia" in the executive committee of the highest institution of the AFC for the first time.
Subsequently, the chairmen and vice-chairmen of the 16 committees under the AFC were adjusted, and no one in the China Football Association was elected.
However, according to the current "status" of China football, whether it is elected as a director or not has little influence, because even when Zhang Jian and Du Zhaocai were directors, it didn’t bring much help to China football. Even when Du Zhaocai was the chairman of the arbitration committee, China football didn’t even benefit from it, and even suffered a lot when facing the West Asian teams.
In fact, after Zhang Jilong, China’s football diplomacy or "foreign affairs" has been "aphasia". Since then, neither Zhang Jian nor Du Zhaocai has done it, especially Du Zhaocai.
That is to say, after Zhang Jilong’s retirement, China’s football diplomacy has been broken, and the "advantages" of Chen Chengda, Xu Fang and Zhang Jilong, which come down in one continuous strain, are gone.
For Song Kai, there are many things to do after taking over the mess of China Football Association. Youth training and league matches are very important. Judging from his trip to Doha, football diplomacy has not been neglected, or an open attitude.
In the past, some leaders of the Football Association actually did not attach importance to football diplomacy, and some were jealous and some were disdainful of Zhang Jilong’s contribution. Despite Zhang Jilong’s persuasion, Nan Yong "formed an alliance" with Haman, then president of the Asian Football Association, and got a temporary "pleasure" for a football player in China. At that time, he was full of pride. "What football diplomacy is, it’s just interests."
Nan Yong’s words have some truth. "Interests" are indeed fundamental, but connections are also indispensable. Otherwise, there is no channel for "mutual benefit", or why do people believe you? Haman took over at that time, mainly because he was under siege and needed an "exit".
At present, the situation in the AFC is that "the west wind overwhelms the east wind", and for many years, it is very difficult for China football to regain its voice, which Song Kai should be aware of.
In 2013, with the support of Blatter, Salman ascended the presidency of the AFC, and was re-elected for three times since then. The latest term is in 2027. From the current point of view, he has completely controlled the AFC, with no opponents, and his power is better than that of Haman. His secretariat manages almost everything.
Over the years, China’s football diplomacy has been guided by the principle of "following the establishment", which has both advantages and disadvantages. The advantage is that you can sometimes have a sip of soup, but the disadvantage is that you can only have soup.
Previously, China football could not speak because it could not bring "benefits". At that time, many sponsors of the AFC were Japanese and Korean companies, while there were almost no in China; Later, China enterprises participated extensively, but did not express their due "interest demands". They only paid money and did nothing.
For China football, a good opportunity is that an enterprise in China won the business development right of AFC for 8 years (from 2021 to 2028) for 2.4 billion US dollars in 2018. Unfortunately, due to the epidemic, the company lost money for years and was unable to pay the relevant funds, so it had to re-sign the contract and give up most of the benefits. Among them, AFC suffered heavy losses, and China football was also negatively affected.
Since then, China Football Association gave up the right to host the Asian Cup, which also caused dissatisfaction with the Asian Football Association. Among them, Du Zhaocai’s "inaction" was involved.
Therefore, in a certain period of time in the future, China football must regain its "trust" and establish new "contacts" with the world football. Song Kai revealed that the China Football Association is discussing matters related to hosting the World Youth Championship and the World Youth Championship.
In addition, China enterprises that sponsor FIFA and AFC must form a joint force and work closely with the Football Association to maximize the interests of all parties.
During his stay in Doha, Song Kai first met with AFC President Salman and talked with some AFC leaders. Accompanied by Song Kai, Luo Zhao, who has worked in the Foreign Affairs Department of the Football Association for many years, is very familiar with many things about the AFC.
Later on October 30th, local time, Song Kai met Salman on the day he arrived in Doha. Salman congratulated Song Kai on his election as president of China Football Association and reiterated that AFC will continue to cooperate with China Football Association. "I believe that under the leadership of Mr. Song Kai, China football will be promoted to a higher level." Salman said that he was concerned about Song Kai’s remarks. "We have seen the determination of the leadership of the new China Football Association." Song Kai expressed his appreciation and welcome for Salman’s commitment. Salman revealed that the AFC will have a series of concrete development plans to help China’s football continue to develop.
On the 31st, on the day of the AFC Awards Ceremony, Song Kai also had a talk with relevant people of AFC. Although he didn’t have a thorough understanding, he at least laid a foundation. In fact, Zhang Jilong once said that China’s football diplomacy is nothing more than four words: making friends.
Of course, it is whimsical to expect Song Kai to restart football diplomacy at once and even achieve results. After all, he is only a "newcomer", but at least, he has taken the first step. In the future, under the guidance of the policy of "making friends", he will be down-to-earth and may recover lost ground.
On September 17th, some netizens ran into Liu Yifei filming in the hospital on the public platform, which triggered a heated discussion.
The netizen wrote in the photo: "The goddess is beautiful. The yellow skirt is really beautiful, white and thin. It is very eye-popping in the crowd."
In the exposed photos, Liu Yifei’s head is long and white, and she caresses the little girl’s hair from time to time, which is very gentle.
Another netizen also took photos at the scene and praised Liu Yifei: "This woman should only be in the sky, and the world can get a few times."

"Fairy Sister" Liu Yifei is 36 years old! Tang Yan sent birthday wishes for 9 years in a row, and Kara Wai took a photo of his face. 1314: Happy birthday, Princess Sisi, love you forever.
On August 25th, Liu Yifei, the fairy elder sister, celebrated her 36th birthday, and Tang Yan, Kara Wai, took photos and sent birthday wishes.
At noon that day, Tang Yan took a beautiful photo of Liu Yifei and sent her birthday wishes: "Happy birthday, dear Princess Sissi, may everything you hope for be safe and everything you wish for come true! Everything is beautiful around you! "
It is reported that this is the ninth consecutive year that Tang Yan sent birthday wishes to Liu Yifei.
Later, Kara Wai, who collaborated with Liu Yifei on Ghost Story, took a photo and sent a blessing: "Happy birthday, I love you forever!" She also deliberately stuck 1314, very attentively.
In the photo, Liu Yifei and Kara Wai took a selfie with their shoulders pressed against their faces, and they were in excellent condition.
According to public information, Liu Yifei was born on August 25th, 1987, and she was titled "Sister of the Immortal" when she debuted. She once starred in the Golden Powder Family, Legend of the Sword and the Chivalrous Man, The Condor Heroes, Eight Dragons, Bronze Sparrow, Mulan, Dream of China and other works.
According to JBO Sports, Chelsea coach Frank Lampard expressed great dissatisfaction with Arsenal’s intentional loss. In the match between Arsenal and Nottingham Forest, Nottingham Forest stubbornly resisted under the pressure of relegation and finally defeated Arsenal with a score of 1:0. This result caused Arsenal to miss the championship completely, while Manchester City won the championship before the current round.
It is reported that the Chelsea team is extremely dissatisfied with Arsenal’s losing behavior. Head coach Lampard said in an interview with the media: "I think Arsenal’s behavior lacks professional ethics and sportsmanship. Every team should be responsible for its own achievements, rather than pushing the responsibility to others. "
Lampard also said that the team should win the game with its own strength, rather than relying on others’ losing behavior to qualify for the championship. He believes that this behavior is not only unfair to Chelsea, but also affects the reputation of the entire Premier League.
Arsenal manager Artta dismissed the accusation. In an interview, he said: "Our players made all efforts in the game, but we failed to win in the end. This is a difficult game and we didn’t lose on purpose. "
However, this incident still caused extensive discussion outside. Some fans and the media believe that this kind of losing behavior is an insult to sportsmanship and professional ethics and should be condemned and punished. Others believe that the team has the right to decide its own game strategy, and other teams have no right to interfere.
In any case, the occurrence of this incident will undoubtedly have a certain impact on the reputation of the Premier League. In the future, league organizers need to consider how to avoid such similar incidents from happening again to protect the fairness and competitiveness of the league.
The NBA playoffs were in full swing, and Drummond Green was suspended by the league for an irrational foul on King’s center Sabonis Jr. Although the Warriors were very dissatisfied with the punishment result, fortunately, Green’s absence did not stop the Warriors from winning. The bad news is that the NBA hates Green’s bad behavior, and the Warriors are no longer the favourites supported by the league, which casts a shadow over their championship prospects. Dreamcatcher’s contract expires in one year, and he will have the player option next season. The Warriors management wants to send him away, and this summer will be the best opportunity.
Recently, according to Eddie Bitar, a reporter from the US media bleachers, the Warriors, the Lakers, the Hawks and the Heat are expected to discuss a four-way trading offer this summer, which involves five players including Butler, Trey Young, Dreamcatcher Green, Collins, and a first-round draft pick. The specific trading plan is as follows: 1. The Warriors send Drummond Green to get John Coe. 2. The Lakers sent eight villages (sign first and then change) to get Drummond Green; 3. The Hawks sent Trey Young+John Collins to get the first round signing of Jimmy Butler+Bacun +2023 Heat; 4. The Heat sent Jimmy Butler+the Heat signed Trey Young in the first round in 2023.
For the Warriors, Collins is 25 years old, with a height of 2.06 meters, a wingspan of 2.11 meters and a weight of 103 kilograms. He is a power forward, playing 30 minutes per game this season, contributing 13.1 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1 block, and shooting 50.8%. He is a representative figure of the players in the era of small ball in today’s league. He has outstanding running and jumping ability, flying all over the court, soft shooting feel and various offensive means. On the defensive end, he dares to fight physically, can chase and defend the backcourt players with fast speed, and can perfectly match the infinite defense system of the Warriors coach Cole. With the aging of Curry, Clay Thompson, Green and others, the Warriors’ management is making great efforts to cultivate the younger generation represented by Poole, Wiggins and Kumingga. Collins meets the needs of the Warriors’ management in terms of age, experience and tactical integration.
Pelinka, the general manager of the Lakers, hopes to use James’ surplus value to bring the 18th championship trophy to Los Angeles, thus surpassing the Celtics to take the top spot in one fell swoop. Although he recruited a large number of powerful role players before the trade deadline this season, this Lakers team lacks a defensive gate like Green, PJ Tucker and Smart, which often makes them feel powerless whenever they hit the critical moment. The joining of Dream Chasing will solve this problem. He has always praised James’s strength. If he can cooperate in Los Angeles this time, the hope of the Lakers winning the championship will be increased to a certain extent.
The Hawks’ record this season is not as good as expected. Trey Young is not for sale in Atlanta. Not long ago, he was selected as the most overrated player in the league by the American media The Athletic, which made Trey Young’s situation more and more difficult. His agent team will discuss the future development direction of the team with Eagle management after the playoffs. Jimmy Butler is a famous tough guy in the league. He is very comprehensive in skills and confident in shooting. CIC has great lethality and is used to taking over the game at critical moments. In addition, he is also a top-level flank defense expert, with both body shape, attitude and consciousness. Butler is like a restless catfish, and his joining will disturb the whole fish pond of the Hawks. This transaction of the Hawks management is expected to bring them closer to the championship.
In the 26th round of Serie A, Naples won 2-0, which means that they are back on the right track after the last round of defeat. They scored 68 points and were far ahead in the championship, which also shows that the other four teams can only reach the second place at most. From the point of view of points, originally Inter Milan was most likely to hold the second place in the standings. After all, after the first 25 rounds, their points reached 50 points, temporarily ahead of Lazio, AC Milan and other teams!
However, with the end of the 26th round, Inter Milan, the 19th champion of Serie A, almost ruined its advantage. In this round of competition, the Nerazzurri played against spezia, and in the first round, Inzaghi led a 3-0 victory. In addition, the starting price of Vispe Zia of Inter Milan is 278.1 million euros, which shows that the Nerazzurri have won completely. Even the Nerazzurri are considered to have the strongest lineup in Serie A, and it seems that they deserve to win again. Unfortunately, things didn’t work out, and the "Nerazzurri" finally faced defeat under the frequent waste of opportunities.
From the 5th minute when lautaro got the chance to play, to the end of the first half, Inter Milan launched more than 5 attacks, but all failed, including a penalty. However, lautaro missed the penalty in the first half and became the player who missed the penalty the second time since the 2021-2022 season: 8 penalty kicks and 4 penalties. In the second half, Inter Milan stepped up their offensive. From the 46th minute to the 83rd minute, lautaro and brozovic launched attacks in vain, and finally the score was rewritten with the help of Lu Kaku’s penalty.
However, spezia’s luck was even better. In the 55th minute, Danielle Maldini was unguarded and scored from the front of the restricted area. In the 87th minute, Spezia relied on a penalty to kill the game directly, and Inter Milan lost 1-2. What we need to know is that the possession rate of the "Nerazzurri" in this battle is 38 percentage points higher than that of the opponent, and the number of shots reached 28 times, which is 7 times that of the opponent. However, it is still embarrassing that it is still impossible to win.
Interestingly, the defeat of this game is also the first defeat of Inter Milan against spezia. In the previous nine games, the Nerazzurri won eight games. It seems that the team’s instability has seriously affected a series of records! Of course, the defeat of Inter Milan is undoubtedly a good thing for AC Milan in the same city. After the first 25 rounds, the Rossoneri accumulated 47 points.
In other words, if we win this round, then AC Milan points can also reach 50 points, which is consistent with Inter Milan, and then better compete for the second place. You know, in the first 18 rounds, AC Milan beat Inter Milan and held the second place in the standings. Now it seems that Pioli is expected to lead the team to restore the victory!
