Cannavaro said he sought out the opinion of Lippi, who now serves as an adviser, including player selection.
“The China Cup players are all those who had good performances in the previous rounds of the CSL, along with young players,” said Cannavaro.
“What we need is a sustainable system that will allow the best
coaches all around the world to work here in the future. It’s not a short-term play. It will take time.”
“It’s like building a house－the first job is to build a solid foundation,” he said
“Based on that, we can have success. Compared to Japan and South Korea, their plans started decades ago.
“They are 20 to 25 years ahead of China in terms of their soccer development.”
Another factor was that Cannavaro did not recall China’s best striker, Wu Lei, who is now playing for Espanyol in La Liga.
Other experienced veterans, such as captain Zheng Zhi, were passed over in order to make way for younger players.
Every morning, dozens of students from Myanmar walk hand in hand across the border into China’s Yunnan province.
There, they are led by patrol officers to Yinjing Frontier Primary School. After school, as they are es
corted to the border inspection station, they wave, tell the officers goodbye and return to their homes in Myanmar.
The students attend the first frontier primary school in China. Locat
ed in Yinjing village in the small border city of Ruili in Yunnan province, the school has 36 M
yanmar students and 99 Chinese students. Founded in 1960, it has been admitting students from Myanmar since 1990.
Wen Liang, 10, from Myanmar, has repeated this routine for three years. “I like goi
ng to school in China. It makes me very happy because I have many friends there,” Wen said.
The youngest Myanmar student is 5, said Sun Jialiang, the school principal.

”The reason for this underperformance relative to the rest of the world is, I believe, the uncertainty surrounding the prospect of Brexit,” Ge
rtjan Vlieghe, a member of the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee, said in a speech last month.
The pain has also been felt by households. The pou
nd plunged 15% against the dollar after the 2016 vote, pushing the price of imported goods hig
her. That spurred inflation and contributed to a decline in the value of people’s paychecks.
Executives have reacted to the uncertainty by attempting to Brexit-proof their businesses.

oms), who became a senior official to serve the country,” Shen said. “What comes second is to be like Du Fu (a reno
wned poet in Tang Dynasty known for his patriotism), who always puts the country’s and the people’s interests first.”
“Over the past 26 years, no one from the office has ever asked about me,” Shen told Red
Star News. The auditing office of Xuhui district hasn’t responded to comment as of press time.
Shen also denied online rumors that he graduated from Fudan University and once lost a daughter to a car crash.
“I have never been married, so how could I have a daughter,” he retorted. “Me, a Fudan graduate? Fudan was far out of my league.”
After days of being bombarded with visits and interviews from curious citizens or online streamers, who
are tapping into his sudden popularity for public exposure, Shen said he hopes he can be left alone so as to read more books.
