As a result, China is now tying at two. China can only advance to the round of 16 when it wins its third match against Qatar on March 22.

Lebanon, which lost one draw and one loss, is also in desperate need of a victory over Tajikistan in the third round.

The game was fierce. Lebanon also took aggressive actions to win its second match as it lost 0-3 to Qatar in the first match.

After a battle, Lebanon had a decisive opportunity first. In the 24th minute of the first half, Omar Bougiel connected a cross by Hussein Al Jain with a header, but it headed above the net.

In the 35th minute of the first half, Lebanon’s Khalil Kamis once again aimed at the Chinese goalpost with a header, but the zero point was not accurate.

China also had a chance. At 44 minutes in the first half, Zhang Yuning even shot a shot when the penalty box was not mixed, but she was blocked by the goalkeeper’s defense.

The second half continued a similar trend to the first half.

Hassan Thurr, helped by Alitneich in the 18th minute of the second half, attempted a right-footed shot but was blocked by the goalkeeper.

In the 20th minute of the second half, China also aimed for the Lebanese goalpost. The goalkeeper failed to handle Dai Weijun’s cross from the right side properly, and the ball flowed. Wu Lei put his foot on it, but the defender handled it and it did not lead to a goal.

When both teams did not score goals, the teams of both teams argued in the 27th minute of the second half.

Since then, both teams have operated more aggressively to score the winning goal. However, no goal was scored in the end, and the game ended in a draw.

In the subsequent Group A match, Qatar won 1-0 over Tajikistan, confirming its advance to the round of 16 early.

Qatar won two consecutive games and will advance to the tournament regardless of the results of the third round.

Tajikistan, which has one draw and one loss, will be decided to advance to the round of 16 in the third game.

Qatar took aggressive management at the start of the game.

In the 17th minute of the first half, Akram Afif touched a through pass that Almoez Ali handed over from the halfway line and rushed to the opponent’s box. He then broke the balance of the game with his right-footed out-front shot.

Afif, who scored his third goal of the tournament with the score of the day, has become the leading scorer at the Asian Cup. Ranked second are Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain) of the Korean national team and Takumi Minamino of Japan.

Since then, both teams have tried to score a wedge and an equalizer, respectively.

However, Tajikistan faced a variable that put them in a numerical inferiority position instead of scoring a goal. At the 36th minute of the second half, Amazani Kamolov was sent off after receiving a red card.

It was a warning at first, but the referee ordered him to leave after checking the VAR (video reading system).

Qatar tried to score additional points through numerical advantage but failed, and the game ended with Qatar’s one-point victory.
