Hong Kong's men's team stumbled to a 21-14 defeat against France at the Rugby Sevens, during which veteran Yiu Kam-shing won his 70th cap for the SAR.
In their first game in Pool B, team Hong Kong had more of the ball in the first half, but were stung twice on the counter by France's Jordan Sepho.
Frenchman Jonathan Laugel added to the tally in the second half, before Hong Kong's Seb Brien managed two tries for the final score.
Yiu said the team made a few mistakes in the first half, but Hong Kong should play with more confidence on Saturday after getting so close against France, who finished second in the last World Series stop in Vancouver.
He said being able to represent Hong Kong 70 times as a sevens player meant everything to him.
"I'm a bit proud of myself, I quite enjoy every game. It also means that, the numbers [make me] feel quite old," he told reporters.
Yiu said his most memorable moments include putting on the SAR shirt for the first time at the East Asian Games in 2009, and winning the gold medal at the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta.
Hong Kong's men's team will play Great Britain just before before 1:30pm on Saturday, before going up against Uruguay shortly after 5:45pm.
