Team reporter analysis
Busisiwe Mokwena (RSA)
Banyana Banyana gave a more composed performance in this match, making fewer mistakes than in their opening outing. However, they continued the trend of defending deep in their own half - even if that helped them frustrate China for large spells. Banyana should also be commended for finding better connections going forward, although they will be frustrated to have come away without a goal - or any points - to show for their efforts.
Qian Sun (CHN)
China had spoken before this match of their strong desire to score, and it showed on the field. They were aggressive in attack and also quick to respond to any danger in defence. China also created many chances to score and, ultimately, one goal was enough. The narrowness of their lead also seemed to focus their minds, as they defended well in the second half. The coach was even able to use his substitutions to try out different combinations in attack, perhaps with half an eye on the all-important Spain match.
