Yes sounds much closer to the name. I got a different romanization of it so I didn't even consider that name. From that list Wang Hangqin was a defensive player though.

1978 Beijing Tournament

According to Beijing Review, 17 October 1978 (German edition) the Yugoslav team was Borac (there are more clubs called Borac, I presume it was Borac Banja Luka), the team from Hong Kong was Happy-Valley, and Diables Rouges from Congo. I still don't know if these red devils were the national A team, a FA XI, or something else... Dutch Amateur was the Dutch national amateur team.

There's also an article in German about the 1980 tournament: Beijing Review, 22 July 1980.

Unfortunately only the first 300 characters of the article are shown, for the rest you need to login smiley: ohwell

The Borac team that took part in the tournament was founded in 1926 [Review], which is consistent with Banja Luka. However, at the time (late August/September) Banja Luka were involved in the Yugoslav league [RSSSF], and they didn't seem to miss a match in that period [Mundo Deportivo].

The Diables Rouges were the "1972 African champions", which is consistent with the Congo A team.

It was FK Borac Čačak. Congo was the national team (although it included Pierre Ngassebe who played for Zaire in 1972 - I think he was actually from Brazzaville and returned there in the mid 1970s). I have most of the goal-scorers of this 1978 tournament from the Xinhua News Agency reports on Nexis.  Any extra info welcome.

BTW, can anybody confirm the correct spelling of (one of China's most famous players) Rong Zhixing ? Often written as Rong Zhihang. In Chinese characters 容志行 - the last character has multiple possible pronunciations, in Mandarin at least, although this player was from Guangdong (Canton) so presumably a Cantonese pronunciation would be the most correct.
I remember I read an article a few years ago which stated that Zhixing was the correct version, but I can't find it now. Even Xinhua News seems to alternate between the 2 spellings.

they played with Kraków on Aug 19, with Katowice on Aug 22
they just played with cities in Poland trip



I checked newspaper archives and the match in 1952-08-19 was played as Cracow vs Beijing. HT result 6-0.

The same link I posted above says that (at least) three Chinese teams visited Africa in 1974, but the one which visited Chad was the national youth team (which also visited Zaire, Rwanda, Burundi, Ethiopia).
