Football Notes: Chinese FA Apologizes For Incompetence In Developing Domestic Game

The Chinese FA "has apologized to fans for its incompetence in managing and developing the country's domestic game, in the wake of a humiliating loss to Thailand and the firing of the national coach." It accepted its "inescapable responsibility" and said that it will make every effort to strengthen the management of the national team (CHINA DAILY, 6/25). ... Spain has "dismissed a Brazilian media story accusing them of hosting a party" at its hotel in Recife "with alcohol, women and a game of strip-poker" after its Confederations Cup opener against Uruguay last week (REUTERS, 6/25).
