The performance of the Hong Kong under-14 team at a regional youth tournament indicates a promising supply of young talent to the local First Division in years to come. The teenagers from the SAR went unbeaten in five matches and scored 21 goals to clinch the East Asian Football Federation Youth Tournament title in Guam last week. 'Some of the boys are very talented and many have a great chance of playing in the Hong Kong First Division in the future,' said Hong Kong coach Kenny Lai Sun-cheung. 'It's still early for them, but with commitment to training some could play for the Hong Kong national team one day.' The boys, selected from district teams, proved unbeatable and overwhelmed three of their five opponents. In their opener against Macau, Hong Kong netted eight times, while the hosts Guam were hit for six, and Mongolia shipped seven. The SAR defence was solid, and only one team, North Korea, managed to beat SAR goalkeeper Yapp Hung-fai in a 1-1 draw. But Hong Kong saved their best for last when they edged the highly rated Chinese Taipei team 1-0 thanks to a goal from striker Leung Ngo-hin, who also scored against the North Koreans. 'We had a lot of goal power in this tournament and against Taipei we showed a great concentration and tactical awareness,' said Lai. 'The Chinese Taipei team were very tall and muscular - I suspect some of them were aged 16, not 13 or 14. Maybe they were cheating. But it doesn't matter, we beat them anyway and we are the champions.' Midfielder and team captain Tsang Chi-hau was outstanding, and was tournament top scorer with six goals. Lai said: 'Tsang was a key player for us. He did well. But all of the boys were good. The next step for them is to continue training over the summer. They need to develop their speed and power.' The boys will now be looking forward to the Asian Junior Youth tournament, which Hong Kong is hosting in January, where they will get the chance to test themselves against Japan and South Korea among others.
