Piao Cheng (Chinese: 朴成; pinyin: Piáo Chéng; Hangul: 박성; born 21 August 1989 in Longjing, Yanbian) is a Chinese footballer of Korean descent who currently plays for Beijing Guoan in the Chinese Super League.

Club career[edit]

Piao Cheng started his football career with second tier football club Yanbian FC and was promoted to their senior team in 2007 where he would soon score his first goal for them in a league game on 18 August 2007 against Shanghai Stars in a 2-1 victory. He scored the winning goal in the 67th minute, three days before his 18th birthday.[1] He would then establish himself as a regular within the squad and soon received a call-up to the Chinese under-20 national team's squad in July 2008. He then started to attract the interests of top tier Chinese sides.[2] On 25 February 2011, Piao completed a ¥3 million move to Chinese Super League side Beijing Guoan after impressing many at Yanbian.[3]

International career[edit]

Piao Cheng would be called up to the Chinese under-20 national team that took part in the 2008 AFC U-19 Championship. Throughout the tournament, he would play in three games and scored one goal as China were knocked out in the quarter-finals on 8 November 2008 by Uzbekistan in a penalty shootout.[4] Piao was called up for the first time to the senior squad in June 2013, but did not play due to an injury he sustained in national team training.
