Leicester City are on the brink of qualifying for the European Champions League (ECL) knockout stages after a 1-0 win over FC -Copenhagen on Tuesday continued to defy their domestic woes to keep up a perfect -record in Group G.

For the third time this term Leicester went into a Champions League game on the back of a heavy Premier League defeat but they shrugged off the disappointment to secure a third straight win in the competition thanks to Riyad Mahrez's 40th-minute goal.

It was no vintage show from Claudio -Ranieri's men, who lost 3-0 at Chelsea on Saturday, although they were unfortunate not to triumph by a bigger margin after Islam Slimani had a goal harshly ruled out for offside in the second half.

They ended the contest, however, grateful to keeper Kasper Schmeichel for a -superb one-handed save in the final minute as Leicester inflicted a first defeat on Copenhagen in 24 matches in all competitions.

The win moved Leicester onto nine points Cheap New Balance 574 Palm Springs , one more than they have from eight games in the Premier League. With three matches remaining, they are five clear of second-placed Copenhagen and Porto, who beat Club Bruges 2-1 in Belgium.

For much of the encounter, especially the first half, Leicester looked exactly like a side struggling for points domestically.

They created little and struggled to get a stranglehold in midfield as their Danish opponents -confidently stroked the ball around the pitch.

When Leicester broke the deadlock five minutes before halftime Cheap New Balance 574 Sweatshirt , it was a goal out of nothing.

A deep cross from Jamie Vardy found -Slimani lurking at the far post and he -headed down for fellow Algerian Mahrez to flick the ball with the outside of his boot past Copenhagen keeper Robin Olsen and into the net.

The Danes were again the stronger side -after the restart and did their best to peg the hosts back in their own half with Leicester enjoying only brief moments of relief before gradually gaining some -momentum.

There were nervy moments for Leicester at the death, none more so than Schmeichel's superb save to deny Andreas Cornelius, palming his low effort away to safety from close range.

Deng aimed to complete his predecessors' unfinished mission to normalize relations with the US

Thanks to Deng's wisdom and persistence, the enforcement of reform and opening-up policy was unaffected by the 1989 Tiananmen Square incident and ensuing negative international opinion

The calm and confident way in which how Deng dealt with Sino-US relations can be instructive for today's Chinese leaders at a time when Trump's presidency is causing uncertainty in bilateral ties

"When Deng Xiaoping visited the US [in 1979], I was a university student. I read newspaper reports [about the trip] almost word by word, including every single piece of news in the People's Daily," recalled Qian Jiang Cheap New Balance 574 Island , journalist and author of Deng Xiaoping and The Establishment of Sino-US Diplomatic Relations, in his blog.

China and the US established diplomatic ties on January 1, 1979, when Deng was serving as China's vice premier and was de facto paramount leader of the Communist Party of China. He then paid an official visit to the US at the invitation of US President Jimmy Carter in late January. As the first visit by a Chinese leader to the US in history, Deng's trip caused a sensation in the US and around the world.

"Documentaries recorded that Deng's nine-day trip changed the view of the US government and wider society towards China. While the establishment of bilateral ties meant the US legally recognized the People's Republic of China Cheap New Balance 574 Outdoor , his visit made it into an emotional recognition. He broke the stereotype that Westerners had about Chinese with his humor and volubility," said Liu Yawei, director of the China Program at The Carter Center.

"Deng's boosting of the establishment of Sino-US ties created a peaceful environment for the two countries. For decades, peace has been the cornerstone of the bilateral diplomacy, though there have been frictions and disagreements at times Cheap New Balance 574 Retro ," Qian told the Global Times.

The total volume of Sino-American trade has exploded in recent decades. According to statistics from the Chinese Ministry of Commerce released in January, Sino-US trade volume today is 211 times greater than it was 38 years ago, going from $2.5 billion in 1979 to $519.6 billion in 2016. China surpassed Canada to become the US's biggest trade partner in 2015, according to statistics issued by the United States Census Bureau.

Without Deng's courage and determination, Sino-US ties wouldn't have been normalized in 1979 Cheap New Balance 574 Floral , as there were still a lot of obstacles and difficulties at that moment which are explained in Ezra Vogel's book Deng Xiaoping and the Transformation of China, said Liu."Despite the great many obstacles and difficulties, Deng decided to establish diplomatic ties with the US because he saw the big picture of China's future development and the significance of Sino-US ties to the world. He chose to shelve the disputes," Liu told the Global Times.

Being pragmatic in dealing with Sino-US relations is something we need to learn from Deng's approach, Liu argued upon the 20th anniversary of Deng's death this Sunday. As Cheap New Balance 574 Classic , in the words of former US President Barack Obama, the Sino-US relationship will "shape the 21st Century," Qian and Liu stressed that it's important for the two sides to enhance mutual trust today.
