The Hong Kong 'Ling Bhat' 2008 Olympic squad have been told to polish their shooting skills after losing 2-3 to Malaysian Super League side Sabah in a friendly match at So Kon Po sports ground. Sabah, without forward Keith Jerome Gumbs, earlier beat local giants Sun Hei and Gumbs' former side Happy Valley during their training stint here. Hong Kong's Olympic squad were boosted by First Division players, including Kitchee striker Chan Siu-kay, South China's Leung Tsz-chun and Kwok Kin-pong, as well as Tong Kin-man and Lau Tsz-leong from Fukien. Leung and Kitchee's 18-year-old forward, Cheng Lai-hin, put Hong Kong ahead 2-1 early in the second half, but Sabah struck two late goals to clinch the match. Hong Kong coach Tsang Wai-chung was pleased with the result, but admitted that his strikers needed to work harder and had to be more clinical in front of the goal. 'Sabah did not play their strongest side, but they were still too fast for us. We have learned a lot from them,' he said. 'Our players showed improvement in their counter-attacks, but wasted a lot of scoring chances. More needs to be done.' Meanwhile, the Chinese Football Association has changed the Hong Kong players' hotel for security reasons, one week before they take on China in a crucial World Cup qualifier in Guangzhou. The SAR squad will now stay at China Hotel, which has an underground car park so that players will not be mobbed by fans on their way in and out. Hong Kong will name their squad on Friday. Head coach Lai Sun-cheong said he would not make too many changes, besides seeking a replacement for South China defender Feng Jizhi, who will undergo nasal surgery this week. China and Kuwait are currently separated by goal difference as they look ahead towards next Wednesday's Group Four deciders against Hong Kong and Malaysia, respectively.
