During the day of the nationwide selection test to choose the members of China Youth, O and Hi entered together. As Hi didn't perform well in most of the tests, he tells O that he has no chance. However, O knows that Hi's true worth lies in his headers, therefore, for the most important test, the practice test, O attempts to make the two of them end up in the same team, and eventually succeeds, albeit a bit clumsily. In the end, O's perfect centerings and Hi's hat-trick earned them spots in China Youth.
Before the tournament, the team had to undergo a hellish training. Here, O constantly encouraged Hi and helped the latter in improving and correcting his weaknesses.
Chapter of the Asian Youth Championship
China has to play the 1st round of the Asian preliminaries without the ace Shunko Sho, because of an injury he suffered earlier. Still, they manage to qualify for the 2nd round.
China's next opponent is Japan. Just as the match starts, China take the offensive. O starts dribbling near the side line at a great speed, and after getting past Ryo Ishizaki with an individual technique, he sends a centering for Hi, who successfully does a header. Much to their surprise however, the supposedly injured Genzo Wakabayashi perfectly catches the ball instead of punching it away.
Soon, China launches another attack. O manages to trick Ishizaki again, this time by speeding up suddenly after pretending to go backward by slowing down. He then does another centering for Hi. However, Wakabayashi comes out of the goal to get the ball before it reaches Hi's head. Hi's already going for a header though, so his head hits Wakabayashi's hand. Strangely, Wakabayashi is in pain because of that, and Hi's action is judged as a foul. Japan scores a goal right after that, but China becomes aware that Wakabayashi's hands aren't actually healed and will eventually break down, therefore they decide to keep attacking with Hi's headers.
Japan notices China's tactic however, as they use 2 defenders to mark O and utilize the offside trap and Masao Tachibana's Skylab technique to deal with Hi in order to protect Wakabayashi's hands. The difference soon becomes 2 goals.
China continues to attack. With Masao letting down his guard for a moment, believing that even if O manages to send a centering, his Skylab Defense will prevent Hi from doing his headers, O goes for a low centering for Shunjin Go instead. This leaves Masao with no choice but to go block Go's attempt, and this ends up in a high ball for Hi. Hi successfully scores, since just as China expected, Wakabayashi's hand can no longer catch any shots. Still, Japan scores an additional goal right before the end of the first half.
During the second half, China releases their ace, Sho, who soon gets back 1 goal for them. Later, China manages to defeat Japan's golden combi, Tsubasa Ozora and Taro Misaki, thanks to a cooperative play between Go, Hi and O. After that, Sho scores the tying goal for China.
In the end however, with Tsubasa playing at full strength, Japan scores 3 more goals, and China loses 3-6. Also, the ace Sho is injured again, forcing China to play their last match against Saudi Arabia without him. Despite putting up a good fight, China still loses 0-1, and is thus eliminated from the tournament.
