Seven Guangzhou Evergrande players have been caled up to the China National Team roster for the upcoming friendly games against Sweden and Brazil.
China will play Sweden in Helsingborg on September 6th and will take part in another away game in Recife against Brazil on September 10th.
Shanghai Shenhua’s Wang Dalei received his first ever call-up for the national team, whilst Tianjin’s Yu Dabao and Beijing’s Wang Xiaolong were excluded from the squad.
Tang Miao, Zhang Yuan, Yang Xu, and Zhu Ting were recalled, though recent Evergrande signing Huang Bowen did not receive a call-up because he is under suspension.
It was also reported that Zhang Chengdong was excluded so he can have more time to practice with his new club, Eintracht Braunschweig. Instead, Camacho is keeping Zhu Ting in the national team setup, who before being called up for the Ghana match, last played for China in 2008. This side will also see Yang Xu return to the squad, he was a favorite of Gao Hongbo’s but hasn’t seen many appearances since Camacho took over.
Yu Hai and Feng Xiaoting have since been injured after the squad was first named, and they will most likely miss the friendlies. No replacement players have been announced yet.
