Yesterday, Beijing time, the Dalian team ended a short vacation and reinvested in the preparations for the second stage of the Super League.
According to the official blog of Dalian People, with the exception of Hamsik who returned to China to participate in the national team competition and Tong Lei who was selected for the national team, the other players have assembled on October 4th and they will fully prepare for the second stage of the Super League. The team’s foreign aid forward Long Dong also appeared on the team’s training ground today.
Previously, the Venezuelan national team officially announced the 32-man squad, and Long Dong was among them. However, Long Dong has returned to the Dalianers’ training ground. He may not return to Venezuela to participate in the World Preliminaries. Instead, he will stay with the Dalianers and help the team play the second stage.
