Speak up, Jorn Andersen!



"We're not coming here with high expectations," said the former North Korea coach, whose team lost 2-0 in a friendly against Malaysia last week. &ldquo ;We know our situation, we know that we cannot play with the best team here.''

“For a team like Hong Kong not to play with seven, eight best players é hard. Every team has a hard time when they take seven or eight top callers out.



 

“So our expectations here aren't too high right now, but we're going to try our best. We've been together for now; five weeks and if we can, in this time, get back to a good level I'm not so sure. But we'll try our best.”

“This é the first time I have 20 players in shape. I took the strongest squad, not only for quality, but also for players who can adapt to the weather. So there is; different factors to think about, but I can say that the team I have now é the best team I've had in the "last four or five years."
