At the finals of the U20 men’s football at the 14th National Games held in September, players from the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region in northwest China made history by reaching the final. This is the first time in 62 years at the National Games. Parhat Azmat, the head coach of the team, said that the training of the Xinjiang team is not only for the region, but also for China. Though they lost to Zhejiang 2-1, a silver medal is already a proof that Xinjiang is one of the new reasons to have faith in Chinese football.
