Other Sports Lee Chong Wei misses out for Malaysia, lose to China in Sudirman Cup Badminton

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Other Sports News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. China are the 10-time champions of the Sudirman Cup.South Korea and Indonesia are the other nations to have won the tournament.The Sudirman Cup began in 1989. highlightscenter_img Shanghai: A young Malaysian side shorn of legend Lee Chong Wei battled to defeat against powerful hosts China on the opening day of the Sudirman Cup on Sunday. Lee is one of the finest badminton players of all time but his career appears to be nearing a sad conclusion after he was diagnosed last year with early-stage nose cancer. The 36-year-old former world number one’s absence is a severe blow to Malaysia’s hopes of making an impact at the Sudirman Cup, the world mixed team championships.     In his place, Lee Zii Jia, aged 21, faced China’s world number two Shi Yuqi with Malaysia already trailing 2-0 to the hosts in the city of Nanning. Shi was an easy 21-12, 21-11 winner in 35 minutes and China ran out 5-0 victors in the tie. But the Chinese, who along with top-seeded Japan are the favorites, did not have it all their own way against the brave Malaysians.RELATED     Soniia Cheah ranked 34 in the world, pushed third-ranked Chen Yufei to three games. The men’s doubles also went to a deciding game with Li Junhui and Liu Yuchen saving match point for the Chinese. Prior to their daunting opener, Lee Chong Wei issued a rallying call to his countrymen.     “Play out the last bit of your sweat. Play for your pride, your team-mates, your family and the flag you wear at your chest,” he wrote on Instagram.     Only three countries have ever lifted the Sudirman Cup since it began in 1989 — 10-time winners China, holders South Korea and Indonesia. Indonesia began their campaign with a 4-1 win over England. South Korea and Japan — the latter looking to win the Cup for the first time — launch their tournaments on Monday. The Koreans stunned China two years ago on Australia’s Gold Coast to win the prestigious tournament, which is held every other year and this time involves 32 teams.last_img read more

Wayne Rooney: “I’ve had one bad game and everyone’s all over it”

first_imgWayne Rooney believes the criticism directed at him for the lack of goals for Manchester United is unwarranted and is confident he will soon rediscover his scoring touch.The England striker has drawn a blank in each of United’s three games against Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa and Club Bruges, despite being deployed as a central striker by manager Louis Van Gaal.Rooney has not found the back of the net in eight Premier League games for his club, and last scored in their 3-1 win over Aston Villa on April 12.The striker said it is just a matter of time before he starts scoring again. “It’s early on in the season — we’re just three games in. I’ve experienced this criticism before and the goals will come, I know that,” the 29-year-old said.”I understand I have to be the one who’s going to lead that line for us and try and find the goals for us,” the England captain added.”My mind is clear. I know how to play the role. “It’s just a case of getting the chances and taking them, which I’m hopefully going to do soon,” Rooney, who notched 12 Premier League goals last season from a slightly deeper position, said. The striker was also unhappy with the criticism over his recent performances.”I’ve had one bad game this season and everyone’s all over it. I’ve had that throughout my career but hopefully at the weekend I can get off the mark,” he said. “I’m an honest guy. I know when I don’t play well and against Aston Villa I was below my standards.”–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM. Our hashtag is #JoySportslast_img read more
