Yang Lin (Chinese: 杨林; born March 14, 1981 in Dalian) is a Chinese football player who currently plays for Hebei Elite.

Club career[edit]

Shanghai United F.C.[edit]

Yang Lin started his professional football career in 2002 with second tier football club Dalian Saidelong and would go on to established himself as team a regular before the club changed their name to Shanghai United F.C. and moved cities.[1] He played a significant roll in the promotion of Shanghai United F.C. into the China Super League in the 2004 league season.

Henan Jianye[edit]

At the beginning of 2007 he joined the newly promoted Henan Jianye in the China Super League where he had a very productive season where he played in 14 league games and scored one goal.[1] After seeing Henan establish themselves as mid-table team the following season was to prove less successful for Yang Lin as he was only able to make seven appearances for Henan.[1]

Return to Dalian[edit]

After a personally disappointing season for Yang Lin which saw him lose his place at Henan he transferred to Dalian Haichang. At Dalian, Yang Lin would be utilized as a centre back due to his height for several games.[2] He would returned to his position as a striker against Shenzhen F.C. in a league game which saw him score his first goal for Dalian.[3] When his season long loan period ended he decided to stay in Dalian with the newly formed Dalian Aerbin F.C. and play within the third tier during the beginning of the 2010 league season.

International career[edit]

He made his debut for the senior national team on December 17, 2002 in a friendly against Syria in a 3-1 victory.[4] In 2007 he played in the early stages of the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification where he scored his first goal against Myanmar national football team, however since then he only made several further friendly appearances before being dropped from the team.[5]
