Football in Taiwan in Tough Competition
Football is not a particularly popular sport in Taiwan. Here, especially handball, hockey and basketball are well-liked and have the audience's attention. The girls from Taichung Municipal WuChuan Junior High School know that. Three years ago the school created a football team for girls who have since participated in tournaments in both Japan and Thailand.
‘Last week we participated in Gothia Cup in Sweden and this week in Dana Cup, so it is a great experience for the girls, who have not been to Europe before,’ smiles the head of the delegation Lau, Jung Kuang.
‘Dana Cup is a fine tournament, but it is very hot,’ Lau, Jung Kuang adds.
Taichung Municipal WuChuan Junior High School drew 1-1 against Norwegian Trott in the first match. However, today the girls played well and beat Sørumsand from Norway 3-1.
