Xi Jinping’s Three Wishes For Chinese Football

China’s heir apparent brought up football again this week during his meeting with Sohn Hak-kyu, South Korea’s main opposition Democratic Party leader.

From Xinkuaibao via Xinhua:

After the meeting, Sohn Hak-kyu gave a football autographed by Park Ji-Sung to Vice President Xi as a present.  As a football fan, Xi expressed that China’s World Cup qualification, hosting of the World Cup and winning the World Cup are his three wishes.
