‘Match fixing? mistake?’ ‘Unusual goal conceded’ by China’s veteran goalkeeper


It is unknown what the intention was. However, Yan Junling (32, Shanghai Haigang), one of China’s leading goalkeepers, made a laughable mistake.

On the 20th, Shanghai Haigang lost 1-2 to Beijing Guoan in the 28th round of the Chinese Super League held at the Pudong Football Stadium in Shanghai.

The match on this day attracted attention as a confrontation between powerful teams, but even more than that, Shanghai’s goalkeeper Yan Junling’s mistake made Weibo, China’s social media site, hot.

Yan Junling received the ball from teammate Wang Xuanqiao in the 24th minute of the first half and was looking for a way to pass. However, he hesitated even after seeing the rush of opposing attackers, and eventually gave up the first goal in vain due to a tackle following the rush of opposing attackers. There was obviously a lot of time to handle the ball, but it was a somewhat incomprehensible loss.

A scene of a slight smile after conceding a goal was also captured on camera, perhaps because it was a sign of success or because it was also absurd.

However, given the circumstances, reasonable suspicion is being raised in China. Some fans expressed their anger on Weibo (Chinese social media), saying, “This is blatant match-fixing,” and “We bet on soccer.”

Of course, the possibility of match-fixing is low. In a situation where the Chinese soccer world has already purged all key figures, including the head of the soccer association and the deputy director of the General Administration of Sports, due to match-fixing and bribery, no one would dare approach Yan Junling, and if it were not for the huge remuneration, Yan Junling himself would also take this into consideration. The possibility of manipulation is extremely low.

Even Shanghai Haigang is an organization whose parent company is Shanghai International Port Trust Co., Ltd. (net profit of 14.6 billion yuan in 2021), which is completely unrelated to the financial crisis. It can be seen that there is almost no chance of salary being pushed back or exposure to the threat of match-fixing due to low salary.짱구카지노

However, since he conceded a ridiculous number of goals that even he himself was disappointed in, it seems that he will have to use his performance in the next game to remove his dishonorable label. Haigang’s next game is against Shandong Taishan on the 29th.
