SUZHOU, China, Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- With a hat-trick from Polish midfielder Adrian Mierzejewski, Chongqing Lifan cruised into the championship race after a 4-1 victory over Shijiazhuang Ever Bright in the 13th round of the Chinese Super League (CSL) here on Friday.
In light of these developments, and recent enthusiasm for skiing in China, Xinhuanet talked exclusively to Chinese amateur skiers, to know more about why they fell in love with skiing and get their perspective on the growth of the sport.
"The relationship with the players is excellent, it is important to have a dialogue with them," the 41-year old added.
Earlier this month, Costa Rican team officials said the match would not be possible if the country's health ministry did not provide an exception to a mandatory 14-day quarantine for all travellers arriving from abroad.
The sending off killed the game for Desna as Wolfsburg assumed control and possession but for all that the hosts lacked in producing promising opportunities.
The Prime Minister then answered "yes" when asked whether all people are included in the number of 1,000.
The first half saw fierce confrontation from both sides, as Hebei was eager to win a ticket to the championship game, while Tianjin had good morale from the latest match, and didn't want to lag behind.
Newly-promoted Stuttgart inflicted Mainz's second loss in as many games, as goals from Silas Wamangituka, Daniel Didavi, Mateo Klimowicz and Sasa Kalajdzic secured a 4-1 victory.
The second half seemed to end in a draw, especially when both sides nearly ran out of stamina with more mistakes. Thanks to defender Ding Haifeng's accurate pass, Markao made a final hit for the Hebei side with a powerful header in the 91st minute.
According to ski amateurs, the excitement of racing down the piste may be as pure as the mountain snow or as bracing as an Arctic chill. However, getting good at skiing is extremely challenging.
Shenzhen FC, which ranked fifth in the group with 14 points, will face Rafael Benitez's Dalian Pro in the 13th round on Thursday.
