The Chinese Taipei national football team represents the Republic of China (Taiwan) in international football and is controlled by the Chinese Taipei Football Association (CTFA, Traditional Chinese: 中華民國足球協會), the governing body for football in Taiwan.

Contents

It is a member of the Asian Football Confederation's East Asian Football Federation. Despite never qualifying for the FIFA World Cup, Taiwan reached the semi-finals of the 1960 and 1968 AFC Asian Cups, finishing third in the former. The side also won gold in the football sector at the 1954 and 1958 Asian Games although the players in the team originated from British Hong Kong.

History

The Chinese Taipei Football Association (CTFA) was founded in Mainland China as the China Football Association (CFA) in 1924 and relocated to Taiwan in 1949 at the end of the Chinese Civil War. Affiliated with FIFA in 1932 as China, it rejoined FIFA in 1954, first under the name Taiwan,[ citation needed ] then Republic of China,[ citation needed ] and later Chinese Taipei.

The team's greatest success came when they finished third in the Asian Cup in 1960, playing as Taiwan. However, the players in the team originally also came from Hong Kong as the reputation of the Hong Kong national football team was not as good. [7]

Due to the political conflict with People's Republic of China (China PR), Taiwan played in the OFC World Cup qualifying tournaments from 1975 to 1989.

The side reached their highest FIFA World Ranking of 121 in July 2018 under the guidance of renowned English coach Gary White. White led a successful period for the team, including winning 7 FIFA international games in a row. Charged with taking Taiwan to their first AFC Asian Cup since 1968, White took over the team halfway through the qualification campaign and missed qualifying the team by one point. White's process included scouting Taiwanese talent from abroad to improve the standard of football on the island, tapping Tim Chow and Will Donkin for the national team. In December 2017, the country hosted the CTFA International Tournament, designed to test the country in preparation for stronger teams in the future, bringing Taiwan's first international trophy in 55 years. White was head-hunted by the Hong Kong national team and departed Taiwan in September 2018. [8]

Stadium

Many of the team's home matches were played in the Chungshan Soccer Stadium in Taipei, which was closed in 2008. The stadium's capacity was slightly above 20,000 and is a football specific stadium.

The qualification match for 2012 AFC Challenge Cup in February 2011 was played on Kaohsiung National Stadium, while the qualification match for 2014 FIFA World Cup in July 2011 was played on Taipei Municipal Stadium.

The Mongolia national football team represents Mongolia in international football under the control of the Mongolian Football Federation (MFF). Founded in 1959, the federation was inactive between 1961 and 1997 and the men's national team did not feature in any international fixtures during that time. The federation was reorganised in 1997 and joined the AFC the same year. In 1998 the federation became a full member of FIFA, the international governing body for the sport. The MFF joined the EAFF as one of eight founding members in May 2002. Because of the harsh climate and a lack of suitable venues, the team has hosted few home matches in the past. However, in 2002 the MFF, with assistance from FIFA, began developing facilities in the country, including the creation of the 5,000-seat MFF Football Centre, which will allow the team to play more matches in Mongolia. About Mongolia's relatively low number of matches played, former national team player and coach Zorigtyn Battulga said, "Lack of games is a problem. No one will come to Mongolia in December and for us to fly to other countries is very expensive so it’s hard to arrange official matches."
