Coach Hao Wei made changes to the side that overcame Thailand so easily on matchday one and the result was a far from smooth performance.

Goals from Ren Guixin, Ma Xiaoxu and tournament top-scorer Yang Li eventually sealed a comfortable success for the Chinese side.

Hao has promised to make multiple changes for the final group fixture with South Korea on Monday evening in order to give unused squad members a chance to impress.

The game will be shown live on CCTV5 at 20.15 Beijing time.
