2019-04-02

Hong Kong Women’s Representative Team has travelled to Tashkent, Uzbekistan for the Women’s Olympic Football Tournament Tokyo 2020 Asian Qualifiers Round 2, with the first game due to take place on Wednesday afternoon in Lokomotiv Stadium, Tashkent, Uzbekistan. Kick-off time for the match will be 3:00pm (Tashkent, local time).

Hong Kong Women’s Representative Team, situated in Group B of the Women’s Olympic Football Tournament Tokyo 2020 Asian Qualifiers Round 2, is coming off an encouraging 1:1 draw against Chinese Taipei recently in an international friendly match and should be all fired up for the second round of the Olympic qualifier. Anchored by influential midfielder Chan Wing-sze and striker Cheung Wai-ki, Hong Kong also possesses several fast-rising stars in the squad, including Wai Yuen-ting, Yiu Hei-man and Chung Pui-ki, and is expected to put up a strong fight against some of the best women’s football nations that Asia has to offer.

Hong Kong Women’s Representative Team head coach Ricardo Rambo vows that his side is going to give its absolute best in the second round of the Olympic qualifier.

“The team performed quite well in the first round of the Olympic qualifier and has also done pretty well lately by drawing Chinese Taipei in an international friendly,” reflected the experienced tactician.

“However, we will be off to a fresh start here in the second round of the Olympic qualifier and everyone in the team needs to stay focused and be prepared. The opponents that we are going to face in Uzbekistan are all tough, hence we must work together as a unit on the pitch and try to showcase what we have practiced on the training pitch. We have proven before that we can come up and do well against some very strong sides in Asia women’s football and the team will be prepared to do so once again this time around.”

Hong Kong is scheduled to face Jordan (ranked 54th in FIFA women’s ranking) on the 3rd April 2019 (Wednesday), then is set for a tilt against Vietnam (ranked 35th in FIFA women’s ranking) on the 6th April 2019 (Saturday), before wrapping its Group B commitments by squaring off against Uzbekistan on the 9th April 2019 (Tuesday).
