Saudi_china_newsleadSaudi Arabian  national team beat China (2:1) after their first match in the qualification round for the Asian Cup 2015.

Saudi Arabia got the much-needed win after Hazazi turned in a cross from Al Ittihad team mate Al Muwallad. The team  failed to make it past the group stage of the Gulf Cup of Nations last month and had soon afterwards  fired coach Frank Rijkaard.

“We came to Saudi Arabia and we were hoping to get the three points, but unfortunately we were unlucky. We tried our best to win the match but we made some mistakes and we couldn’t create chances to score goals like Saudi Arabia did,” said China coach Jose Antonio Camacho.
