Fu Bo names China squad for Indonesia qualifier

China interim coach Fu Bo has named his squad for the country’s Asian Cup qualifier with Indonesia on October 15, with several former regulars handed recalls to the international scene.

Among those to be handed recalls are the Guangzhou Evergrande duo of Sun Xiang and Gao Lin, who were rested for recent friendly wins over Singapore and Malaysia. Wingers Yu Hai and Yu Hanchao also return to the national team for the first time in several games.

Shandong Luneng midfielder Jin Jingdao retains his place in the squad, despite not always featuring at club level, but club teammate Zheng Zheng joins Qu Bo, Yang Xu, Li Xuepeng and the injured Zheng Long on the sidelines.

Evergrande’s Huang Bowen is suspended for the fixture, while right-back Zhang Linpeng is selected despite suffering an ankle injury that could well keep him out of the encounter.

Goalkeepers: Zeng Cheng (Guangzhou Evergrande), Yang Zhi (Beijing Guoan), Wang Dalei (Shanghai Shenhua).

Defenders: Feng Xiaoting, Rong Hao, Sun Xiang, Zhang Linpeng (Guangzhou Evergrande), Liu Jianye, Wu Xi (Jiangsu Sainty), Du Wei (Shandong Luneng).

Midfielders: Zheng Zhi, Zhao Xuri (Guangzhou Evergrande), Sun Ke (Jiangsu Sainty), Yu Hai, Yang Hao (Guizhou Renhe), Yu Hanchao (Dalian Aerbin), Jin Jingdao, Wang Yongpo (Shandong Luneng), Liu Jian (Qingdao Jonoon), Zhang Xizhe (Beijing Guoan), Wu Lei (Shanghai East Asia).

Forwards: Gao Lin (Guangzhou Evergrande), Jiang Ning (Guangzhou R&F), Yu Dabao (Dalian Aerbin).
