The 2007 AFC Asian Cup is just around the corner, and China will face Malaysia in their first match on July the 10th. The hot and humid weather in Southeast Asia will be a challenge for the Chinese Football Team. The team had an acclimatization training session on Monday in temperatures reaching 37 centigrade.

Physical training is the main focus for China coach Zhu Guanghu and his players. They have been training in northern China since the announcement that they would play their first match in Malaysia.

According to Zhu Guanghu, he has arranged a comprehensive training plan including strategies and even food. How the Chinese players will encounter their opponents in a different climate is very important for them.
