China are hoping a young -lineup and a new coach will bring a change of fortunes as they bid to reach the Asian Cup knockout stages for the first time in more than a decade.

The world's most populous nation is one of soccer's biggest underachievers but recent success at club level provides a glimmer of hope for Alain -Perrin's side.

China Arturo Vidal Chile Jersey , with a population of 1.3 billion and ever-expanding financial muscle, have mystifyingly stalled since reaching their first and only World Cup in 2002. They came perilously close to missing their first Asian Cup in 11 editions, but scraped through on goal difference as the best-performing third-placed team in the qualifying groups.

However, Guangzhou Evergrande earned respect in 2013 when they became China's first winners of the AFC Champions League, shepherded by World Cup-winning coach Marcello Lippi.

Now Perrin Alexis Sanchez Chile Jersey , formerly of Lyon and Portsmouth, will try to steer China past the group stage for the first time since 2004, when they reached the final on home soil.

The 58-year-old Frenchman arrived in February at the helm of a side in flux after the sacking of expensively hired ex-Real Madrid and Spain boss Jose -Antonio Camacho.

Perrin's first competitive squad features seven players from Guangzhou Evergrande, including their captain and talisman Zheng Zhi, their only representative aged more than 30.

Striker Yang Xu was -selected along with Gao Lin Cheap Chile Soccer Hats , whose goals helped Guangzhou win 2013's Champions League as well as a fourth straight domestic title this season.

Perrin's first game in charge was China's final qualifier, a 3-1 loss to Iraq in March when Zhang Xizhe's second-half -penalty was enough to see them squeak through on goal difference.

But China have lost only one of their 10 friendlies since, a 3-1 defeat to Mali, and have carved out wins against Macedonia, Kuwait Cheap Chile Soccer Hoodies , Paraguay and Thailand.

Their task looks challenging but not insurmountable in Group B, where they will compete with Uzbekistan, three-time winners Saudi Arabia and North Korea for one of two quarterfinal slots.

However, China's exclusively home-based squad remain largely untested and 1-1 home draws against Jordan and New Zealand suggest they may struggle to break down solid opposition.

"We are not the favorite, we do not have the best chance Cheap Chile Soccer Shirts ," Perrin said, when asked about China's Asian Cup chances.

"What I know is that the players are ready to give the best they can ... Anything is possible."

The very 1st state prison in the United States was founded before there were states at all, let alone united ones. Connecticut's New-Gate Prison, originally a copper mine, was began it's role as a detention center in the fall of 1773 as the colony's public "gaol" and workhouse.

It was called New-Gate after the fearsome prison of the same name in England. During the early years of the American Revolutionary War it held captured loyalists and torries. It was also a Prisoner of War facility in the American Civil War.

The people of Connecticut were no less concerned with budget over-run in the late 18th century than we are today Cheap Chile Soccer Jerseys , so the supposed "self-sufficiency" of New-Gate was very appealing. Copper could still be mined from the dank tunnels that made up the prison, allowing prisoners to pay for their own upkeep.

In addition, the structure of the prison, i.e. two shafts, a couple of iron trap-doors and a veritable dungeon of mine tunnels Pablo Hernandez Chile Jersey , meant that a minimal staff would be needed. This included the warden or "Keeper" three guards or "overseers" and a few skilled miners, paid from the prisoners salaries, to instruct the prisoner on the finer points of copper mining.

Surely such a prison was a model of efficiency and security; it's a shame then that the very 1st prisoner escaped in less than a month.

On December 22nd of 1773, John Hinson was the 1st man incarcerated in Connecticut's new New-Gate Prison. Little is known about Hinson, other than that he was 20 year-old and stood 5'6" tall. Even his crime has been forgotten Nicolas Castillo Chile Jersey , though it must have been serious; the New-Gate was reserved for burglars, horse-thieves, counterfeiters, highwaymen and other such hard-cases.

What is known is that on January 9th John Hinson escaped, possibly using his compact size and the vigor of youth to climb up a 70-foot well shaft Mauricio Pinilla Chile Jersey , but more probably aided by an accomplice on the outside with a length of rope and a bit of cash to bribe an overseer.

One rather romantic (and unsubstantiated) tale involves his beautiful ladylove coming to his rescue. The only certainty is that if he was ever imprisoned in Connecticut again, then those records have been lost.

Three months later three more convicts escaped, leading local authorities to grudgingly admit that some sort of wall may be necessary. With the addition of a stone enclosure and a few more guards the prison became far more secure, though it never quite lived up to its initial boast of being escape-proof.

For the next 54-year of its operation some 800 hard-timers lived and worked in Connecticut's largest state-operated dungeon. It wasn't until 1827 that the New-Gate was abandoned as a permanent detention facility, though it did see limited military use in the Civil War.

A new Mauricio Isla Chile Jersey , nominally less medieval prison was built in Wethersfield and the prisoners were transferred there. Presumably the prisoners regarded this as an improvement in their situation. No matter how dismal the new prison was, at least it wasn't subterranean.
