1 August 2018

IN a spirit of reciprocation after the Albion had been the first English team to visit China in 1978, the Chinese national side was welcomed to The Hawthorns for a friendly fixture.

The Throstles were too strong for their opponents however, running out 4-0 winners with goals from Ally Brown, Cyrille Regis and Peter Barnes along with an own goal. 

The second half of the game was screened live on BBC2.
