CSL Round 25: Goals, Attendance, and Well Wishes for Luciano

Our prayers are with you...

However much I dislike Tianjin, you never want to see a player stretchered off the pitch, especially with a bad neck injury. Luciano Olguin, who has worn the captain’s arm band at Tianjin and been a big part of that side for two seasons, was taken off the pitch and immediately to the hospital on Saturday night, he underwent surgery on Sunday morning for his neck injury and is said to be doing well, more updates will be forthcoming.

Liaoning Whowin 1 – 0 Chengdu Blades, Attendance 18,000

Qingdao opens up with a very early goal in the 4th minute and gets a second through spurned national team candidate Zheng Long

Hangzhou Greentown 0 – 0 Shaanxi Chanba, Attendance 8,000
