Soccer in China is dead and its grassroots base too small, Rowan Simson, author of the groundbreaking book “Bamboo Goalpost” and speaker at the China Speakers Bureau, said in a recent interview with Reuters.

“China first victory in their Asian qualifying group for the 2010 World Cup against Australia on Sunday was too little, too late and they now have no chance of appearing at international soccer’s top table until 2014.

“Rowan Simons, whose book “Bamboo Goalposts” was published last month, believes that only widespread reform of the whole footballing structure in China can save it.”
