Hongkonger Dai Wai-tsun scored his first Chinese Super League goal as Shenzhen beat Guangzhou R&F on Saturday in Dalian. The game, which was a repeat of the season opener between the sides, would have featured two Hong Kong footballers but Tan Chun-lok missed out on the squad for the second game running. Shenzhen, who are awaiting the arrival of new coach Jordi Cruyff, took the lead against Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side through Dai after 27 minutes. The player, who is known as Tsun Dai in England where he spent his formative football years with Bury, Oxford United and Wolves, slammed the ball in off the post from a narrow angle after winning the ball at the edge of the area. Xu Yang wrapped up the points in second half stoppage time following up from a parry by R&F goalkeeper Han Jiaqi. Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Mousa Dembele was later sent off for the Guangzhou side deep into stoppage time. Hong Kong head coach Mixu Paatelainen has said that he is watching Dai and Lok, though the former – who is known as Dai Weijun in the mainland – has seen his international future become the source of much speculation after he trained with one of the China age-group sides. The 21-year-old moved to Shenzhen from English Premier League side Wolves ahead of the CSL season’s delayed start in July. In Saturday’s other game, Dalian Pro’s players eased the pressure on manager Rafa Benitez after finally recording their first win of the season eight games into the campaign. ‘People can tell if you’re winging it’ – the challenge of CSL commentary They beat Shandong Luneng, who had won their last four games, 1-0 thanks to a Lin Liangming goal, avenging the opening day 3-2 loss. Dalian dominated the first half, as they had done against champions Guangzhou Evergrande, but were once again guilty of failing to take their chances until Lin netted from a Sun Bo centre after 62 minutes. Former Liverpool and Real Madrid manager had been under increasing pressure as the only winless side in the Dalian-based group. Tianjin Teda remain winless in the league’s Suzhou group. The win moves Dalian Pro to seventh in the standings, ahead of Henan Jianye on goal difference.
