Indian women's football team got a rude awakening when they were humiliated 12-0 by strong contenders China in the Asian Women's Championship being played in Bangkok. Sun Wen, the first woman to be nominated for the AFC Player of the Year award, emerged the star for the 'Steel Roses' scoring half a dozen goals in the match yesterday. Bai Jie scored four goals with the other two goals shared by Liu Ying and substitute Fan Yunjie. It was all one way traffic after Jie opened the account in the 9th minute. This was the beginning of the rout as China scored three goals in three minutes in the 20th, 21st, 22nd minute. Four minutes later, Jie made it 5-0 and India were lucky not to concede any more goals before half time. But China, after changing ends, were quickly back to business and goals rained in the 60th, 62nd, 66th, 70th, 74th, 87th and 90th minutes. With this defeat, India slipped to the third spot in Group C behind China and Vietnam, who beat Uzbekistan 4-2 to take the second spot. India will take on Vietnam in their crucial last league match tomorrow and must register a win to entertain any hope of progressing to the last four. The three group toppers and the best second placed team will qualify for the semi-finals. (PTI)
