Hong Kong coach Tsang Wai-chung has promised fireworks in the East Asian Football Championship qualifiers. Tsang revealed an aggressive game plan yesterday which will be rewarded with cash bonuses for every goal scored. Hong Kong will stage the preliminary rounds of the championship, starting on Saturday with favourites Hong Kong playing Taiwan at the Hong Kong Stadium. The other teams taking part in the nine-day event are Guam, Macau and Mongolia. Tsang is confident Hong Kong will finish top of the group and qualify for final rounds in Japan in May against China, Japan and South Korea. And the more goals they score the better. The Football Association has promised players a $3,000 bonus if they win all four games and an extra $500 if they win games by five clear goals. This is on top of the standard bonuses for caps and wins. 'We'll play aggressive and attacked-minded football since the opposition is not that strong,' said Tsang, who will employ a mobile 4-4-1-1 formation, which can instantly change to 3-5-1-1 to boost the midfield. 'Our backline will push forward and stop other teams from launching long balls,' he said. 'The midfield and defence will press and tackle hard. We're confident teams will not get through if they try a passing game. 'Once we get the ball we'll get it forward quickly and slice open their defence using the wings.' In order to achieve Tsang's plans, the team have been drilled both mentally and tactically. 'We've told the players to play tough and have confidence in themselves,' he said. 'Morale is good and the players seem enthusiastic. They have to make their presence felt on the pitch by being tough, because their opposition will be. 'I've also told them they can still do better, and won't let them slack off even in practice. There will be no stopping or walking in our practice matches. They will have to keep running and treat everything as a real match.' Tsang said his team's first match against Taiwan would be crucial since they were probably the strongest side after Hong Kong. Striker Au Wai-lun said: 'The first match will be the most important. We want to get on a roll by beating what is maybe our toughest opposition,' said the South China striker. 'Being a striker, of course I'd like to get on the scoresheet, but more importantly I'd like the team to win so we can challenge the best teams in Asia.' FA chairman Martin Hong Po-kui would like to see Hong Kong excelling against the best in Asia. 'Playing with the best, like Japan and South Korea, will improve our players. Even though the finals will not be played in Hong Kong, such big matches could boost public interest,' said Hong. In a bid to boost the number of spectators at the qualifiers in Hong Kong, the FA has handed out free tickets to schools and other social organisations. There will also be a lucky draw on every match day with a prize of a free trip to the final rounds in Japan. The winners in Japan get US$400,000 in prize money, while the winners of the preliminary rounds receive US$50,000.
