IC11 Squad - China hoping to climb

International Cup 2011

The Chinese Red Demons are making their second IC appearance in 2011, with the bulk of the squad hailing from the Beijing Bombers. The Shanghai Tigers also have a representative in the cadre of 16 players coming over from China.

The rest of the squad have been recruited from Chinese nationals currently residing in Australia, including one each from LaTrobe University (Melbourne) and the University of Adelaide.

The Red Demons faced a steep learning curve at the IC08, eventually breaking through for their first win over fellow debutants India in their last game of the tournament. Captaining the side is Zhang Hao from Beijing. Their inspirational leader Jiaming Pi from the 2008 squad will be back as vice-captain, this time joined by a further five Chinese nationals who play alongside Pi at the Asian community-based Southern Dragons in Melbourne's Southern Football League.

The team's average height is only 178cm, although they have some bigger players in Zhao Liutao at 195cm and the duo of Zhang Wei and Yang Yang, both of whom are 190cm.

 

Players' names are given in Chinese order, i.e. Surname first, followed by given name.
