Jamaica U-23s win HK Lunar New Year Cup

Hong Kong's Lunar New Year Cup has been won by Jamaica after the Caribbean island's Olympic team beat China's 5-4 on penalties in the final on Wednesday. Team China coach Ratomir Dujkovic was disappointed but hoped his team will have more luck at next year's Beijing Olympics. "We have to get this behind us and look forward to the future. Hopefully we will get more luck. Luck played a major part tonight," Dujkovic told AFCMedia. Earlier, Australia U-23s also needed penalties to overcome Hong Kong in the match for third place. The Olyroos led the hosts 2-0 through Nathan Burns and Bruce Djite before conceding to Festus Baise and a Keith Gumbs penalty, but made amends by scoring all five penalties.
