[Reporter Nian Miaoyun/Comprehensive Report] The Taiwan women's football team will play an international football friendly match with the Thai national team today.
The last time the two sides met was in the 2022 Indian Women's Asian Cup play-offs. The Taiwan women's football team won 3:0. However, in this campaign, the Taiwan team conceded a goal in the first half, failed to counterattack in the second half and allowed the opponent to score another goal. In the end, the score was 0: 2 lost.
Bao Xinxuan, who put on the Taiwan team jersey again this time, has become a highlight of the national team this time.
Although she came off the bench today and failed to help the team win the victory, she said that she is very happy to represent the country again, and she will work harder with her teammates to prepare for the 2023 New Zealand-Australia World Cup intercontinental play-offs. Very close to the World Cup, I, my teammates and the coaching staff are very confident.

Yan Shikai, the head coach of the Taiwan team, said that the two conceded goals actually helped Taiwan to judge and think about how to improve its defense earlier.
On the other hand, the overall offensive performance today is actually not bad. They were able to score in front of the goal and had many scoring opportunities. After returning to China, they will use the content of this game to improve in the training camp.
The Taiwan women's football team will continue to prepare for the 2023 New Zealand Women's World Cup intercontinental play-off after the next annual holiday. It is expected to go to New Zealand in early February to prepare for the game and strive for tickets for the World Cup.
