CSL announces the squad for All-Star Game

By now, we’ve all come to realize that football’s a little different in China and, as if you need yet another example, the league holds an All-Star Game following the end of the season, typically featuring the league champions (Guangzhou Evergrande) against a team of the league’s top players. This year it’s hard to expect much from the match, which is to be played in Guangzhou tomorrow afternoon, as Evergrande will be far more focused on their weekend CFA Cup match in Guiyang.

Here’s this seasons 18-man All-Star roster:

Goalkeeper – Zeng Cheng (Henan), Deng Xiaofei (Jiangsu)

Defenders – Du Wei (Shandong), Wu Xi (Shenhua) Zheng Zheng (Shandong), Tang Miao (R&F), Dubic (Guizhou), Liu Jianye (Jiangsu)

Midfielders – Yu Dabao (Aerbin), Keita (Aerbin), Yu Hanchao (Liaoning), Lu Bofei (Jiangsu), Xu Liang (Beijing), Hao Junmin (Shandong)

Strikers – Danalache (Jiangsu), Yang Xu (Liaoning), Utaka (Aerbin), Yakubu (R&F)



Brandon Chemers aka B. Cheng aka A Modern Lei Feng – is a name which may be familiar to many in the Chinese blogosphere. He currently serves as Editor-in-Chief for Wild East Football and is one of the lonely souls writing about Chinese football in English for the last 10 years. Chemers' credentials are second to none – his former blog focused not only on the fortunes of his beloved Beijing Guoan FC, but a multitude of other aspects of Beijing life. He’s deservedly built a reputation in the Chinese blogosphere as an insightful observer of not only Chinese football, but also the wider picture of life in modern China and its many layers. For WEF, beyond writing about Guoan, he often focuses on fan culture and the business of Chinese football.
