A young Malaysian team gave a decent account of themselves despite losing 0-5 to China in the second Group D match in Aarhus, Denmark.

Following the opening day defeat to the hosts, Malaysia rested several key players and gave debuts to youngsters; 19-year-old Go Pei Kee and 17-year-old Siti Nurshuhaini Azman.

In the first singles tie, Eoon Qi Xuan gave her best against Tokyo Olympic champion, Chen Yu Fei in a 31-minute defeat 13-21 11-21.

China doubled the lead through Liu Xuan Xuan-Xia Yu Ting who overcome Malaysia's scratch pair Lee Meng Yean-M.Thinaah with a 21-12 21-17 win.

China then sealed the win through world No 9 He Bing Jiao, who was simply too strong for Nurshuhaini, when she raced to a 21-8 21-3 win in just 23 minutes.

In the second doubles match, Teoh Mei Xing-Go Pei Kee could not contain the experience and strength of Huang Dong Ping-Jia Yi Fan, who scored a 21-9 21-12 win.

China, who also thrashed Canada 5-0 on Saturday, wrapped up the match through Wang Zhi Yi, who beat K.Letshanaa 21-15 21-11
