Yang Cheng (simplified Chinese: 杨程; traditional Chinese: 楊程; pinyin: Yáng Chéng; born 11 October 1985 in Tianjin) is a Chinese football goalkeeper who currently plays for Shandong Luneng in the Chinese Super League.
Originally starting his career with the Tianjin Locomotive youth team Yang Cheng would move to the Shandong Luneng youth team in 2000 where he would graduate through the various youth squads. He would eventually graduate to the senior team and for several seasons was used as an understudy and would later make his league debut on April 2, 2005 against Inter Shanghai in a 2-1 win. Despite being a promising young player head coach Ljubiša Tumbaković surprised many when he persisted in making Yang Cheng his first choice goalkeeper throughout the season and while Shandong finished the season in third Li Leilei was brought into the squad at the beginning of the 2006 league season to add more experience towards the team.
Under head coach Eckhard Krautzun Yang Cheng would be the first choice goalkeeper for the U-20 Chinese football team in the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship held in the Netherlands. While he would aid China to the knock out stages of the competition Yang Cheng would find himself at fault for China's defeat to Germany when he conceded a penalty that saw Germany win 3-2.
