We all know that the Chinese Team is the team to beat in the upcoming World Team Championships but since the competition will take place in the Japanese capital, the hosting team is not to be taken for granted. This is how Chinese Team's head coach Liu Guoliang assesses their opponents. Aside from Japan, China also eyes on Germany and South Korea. 

Xinhua Net. As the top seed in the 2014 World Team Championships, the Chinese Team is indeed the strongest but since they are playing in foreign grounds, they see the hosting team of Japan as a strong opponent. 

Everyone is now in preparation for the upcoming World Team Championships which will be held in the Japanese capital, Tokyo, on April 28 until May 5. For such a big competition, each team would aim to at least win a medal or much better, clinch the championship title.  With this, China is the team to beat. 

As the defending champion and the top seed, the Chinese Men's Team is a formidable force and they will do everything just to maintain such power. The Chinese Team's head coach Liu Guoliang believes that for this competition, Germany, Japan and South Korean are their strongest opponents. 

"The Japanese players are very young and has the strength to succeed in getting a medal. Playing in their own courts makes them a big opponent of the Chinese Team." Liu Guoliang said.
