China's national football team will be up against Syria in a World Cup qualifier.

China will play the match without veteran Zheng Zhi, who was injured during a match against the Philippines last week.

China has to win this match to keep its hope of automatic qualification alive.

Defender Feng Xiaoting says they will try all that they can to get a victory.

"We have to win all of the next three matches. We haven't been so united going into the match against Syria. It's a must-win match for us. We will fight for ourselves and we will win it the same way they won against us in China," says Feng.

China currently ranks second-from-the-bottom in Group A with five points.
