ADO & Chinese under 19’s draw

Wednesday afternoon in a sweltering Kyocera stadium. The ADO Den Haag under 19 team faced the International under 19 side of China. All this comes about from the ownership of ADO Den Haag by the Chinese company United Vansen and Mr Wang Hui. The Chinese squad are in the Netherlands to prepare for the Asian Youth Championships. As part of the ADO relationship with its Chinese owners, they were allowed to watch ADO train, take part in some training and take on the ADO side. All part of the ever growing link between ADO Den Haag and their Chinese owners.

Due to the heat, the game wasn’t great, but it was full bloodied, plenty of thundering tackles going in, resulting in a few trip onto the pitch by the medical staff. Both opening goals were down to defensive errors. The Chinese going ahead in the eighth minute from Yang Shuai. ADO drew level five minutes later thanks to Chovanie Amatkarijo.

ADO took the lead in the sixteenth minute. This time a crossed whipped into the penalty was met by the head of Delano Ladan, who directed the header with power and accuracy into the back of the net, 2-1.

The second half slowed down about, but after many substitutions, for a while the visitors were the stronger team. During this period they scored a wonderful equalizer. In the fifty fourth minute Ning Weichen saw the ADO keeper way off his line and executed the perfect long range lob over the keeper into the empty net, 2-2.
