Komatsu nets two for impressive Japan
Content: Japan began the men's football tournament in sparkling style, crushing Chinese Taipei 6-1 at the Macau University of Science and Technology sports field on Saturday afternoon.

In the opening match of Group A, Japan led 2-0 at the break and added four more in the second half with a strong all-round performance.

Rui Komatsu scored twice for Japan, in the space of three second-half minutes, and there was one apiece for Shingo Akamine, Shingo Hyodo, Shinji Tsujio and, in second-half injury time, for left-footed playmaker Jungo Fujimoto. Chinese Taipei replied with a long-range effort from Lin Kueipin that sailed over the Japanese keeper to make it 3-1 early in the second half.

Head coach Masahiro Inui said he was very satisfied with Japan's performance, considering it was their first outing since the Universiade tournament in Turkey in August.

"We have not been able to play together for two months, so to score six goals after just two training sessions here is very satisfying," he said.

"I was able to try out two systems, 4-4-2 and 3-5-2, and we showed a lot of discipline."

His opposite number, Lee Po-Houng, said his team lacked experience at this level of international competition.

"The players were too nervous and could not relax, but they tried their best," he said.

"We had a few injuries and this affected the performance."

Group B’s final matches featuring DPR Korea (4 points) versus China (6 points) and Hong Kong(1 point) v Macau(0 points) will be played on Friday.
Even in the friendly setting of the East Asian Games, a football match between Japan and Korea will always have a special edge.

Wednesday night's Group A clash at Macau Stadium was no exception, as Japan produced two second-half goals to win 2-0 and finish on top of the three-team standings.

Both teams had already booked a place in the semi-finals by beating Chinese Taipei, and Japan will now face the runner-up from Group B, while Korea will play the Group B winner in the last four.

Japan's coach, Masahiro Inui, said the first half was all about containing the opposition and saving their energy and aggression for the second period.

"We scored two goals in the second half thanks to the understanding between the players," said Inui.

"We believe that the next opponent will be China, and we'll have to be very careful in that match. We have set our sights on nothing less than the gold medal, and feel that our tournament has just started because of this hard game against Korea.

"It was tough to win and we gained a lot of experience through this match."

Japan's scorers were Rui Komatsu, who bagged two in the 6-1 defeat of Chinese Taipei on Saturday, and Shingo Akamine, who took his tournament tally to two.

China avenged defeat to become champion of East Asian Games
7 November 2005




MACAU: China PR, avenged their earlier 3-1 group loss to DPR Korea, to become champion of the East Asian Games football competition for the first time in four attempts.


Comprising mostly of players targeted for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, China PR beat Korea DPR 1-0 in a match which had very few chances for both teams. It was only in the 72nd minute that the goal was scored as Chen Tao rose to head home the winner.


"I'm really happy to get the gold medal -- this is the fruit of our great efforts in the past few months," said Du Wei who will now fly back to join his club-mates in Glasgow.


Coach Zhu Guanghu was equally elated, ""The players followed our game plan and did well. Winning this tournament is a good start, and it gives the players confidence. Before we came we set two goals: one was to play well, the other was to try out our 08 Team, and now both our goals have been achieved."


Meanwhile, Japan finished third after beating Korea Rep. 4-1.
