China tops Austria 1-0 in rain delayed game

April 27, 2012
No goals scored in the second half under sunny skies

China 1 Austria 0

The second half of the men’s game between China and Austria was played on Friday morning under sunny skies, a far cry from Thursday’s soggy first half which saw the Chinese take a 1-0 lead before play was suspended due to the rain.

In today’s conclusion, it was clear that Austria was pressing for the win as they spend much of the remaining 35 minutes pressuring the Chinese net. But despite their strong efforts, including pulling the goalkeeper for the last two minutes, Austria could not get the game-tying goal as Chine hung on for the 1-0 win.

The teams will be back in action tomorrow. China takes on Brazil, while Austria will face host Japan.
