HONG KONG, March 23 (Xinhua) -- China's Hong Kong dominated a football friendly against Singapore at the Mong Kok Stadium, but only settled for a 1-1 tie here on Thursday.
China's Hong Kong were aggressive from the start, but it was the away side that broke the deadlock in the 19th minute through their first genuine chance when Lionel Tan Han Wei found the back of the net after a well-designed corner.
China's Hong Kong continued their pressing and it paid off before the break. Lionel Tan went from hero to zero as he accidentally prodded a cross into his own net.
The home side kept their tide after the interval, but failed to turn around the game despite some good chances.
China's Hong Kong will have their second friendly match during this international break by visiting Malaysia next Tuesday.
