La'Vere Lawrence Corbin-Ong (born 22 April 1991) is a professional footballer who plays as a left-back for Malaysia Super League side Johor Darul Ta'zim and the Malaysia national team.

Early life[edit]

He was born in London, England, where his parents, Lawrence Corbin (Barbadian) and Elizabeth Ong (Malaysian Chinese), were studying psychiatry and nursing respectively.[1][2] Corbin-Ong was one year old when his family moved to Edmonton, the capital city of Alberta. When he was four years of age, his family moved to North Vancouver, where he was raised.[3]

He played a variety of sports in his youth, including football, lacrosse, gridiron football and tennis.[1] Corbin-Ong was six years old when he started playing football for the Lynn Valley SA.[3]

He played for Capilano University in Canada for a season after high school, then joined the Vancouver Whitecaps Residency program.[4] In 2012, he was set to attend the University of British Columbia and join their UBC Thunderbirds soccer team, but while waiting for the new season in five months went to Europe, where he got a tryout with German fifth tier side FC Pommern Greifswald.[4]

Club career[edit]

Whitecaps Reserves[edit]

Corbin-Ong spent two years playing for the Whitecaps Reserves team, making 29 appearances for the club in 2010 and 2011, when the team competed in USL Premier Development League.

Germany[edit]

Corbin-Ong spent two seasons with FC Pommern Greifswald in the Oberliga Nord, and another two seasons with Berliner AK 07 in the Regionalliga.[5]

After receiving interest from 2. Bundesliga club 1. FC Union Berlin in 2015,[6][7] Corbin-Ong signed with FSV Frankfurt in the 3. Liga in June 2016.[8]

Go Ahead Eagles[edit]

Corbin-Ong joined Eerste Divisie side Go Ahead Eagles on 3 July 2017.[9] He was plagued by injuries during his time with the Eagles.[10]

Johor Darul Ta'zim[edit]

On 24 November 2017, Corbin-Ong was signed by Malaysian Super League club Johor Darul Ta'zim.[11] Due to Corbin-Ong's mother being from Malaysia, he was classified as a local player.[12][13]

International[edit]

Corbin-Ong was born in London to a Barbadian father and a Malaysian Chinese mother, but moved to Canada at the age of one and is therefore eligible to play for Canada, England, Barbados and Malaysia internationally.[14]

In March 2017, Corbin-Ong received his first call-up to the Canadian national team.[15] He made his international debut when he came on a second-half substitute in a 1–1 friendly draw with Scotland.[16]

In June 2019, Corbin-Ong made his Malaysia debut after starting in the friendly match against Nepal.[17] He was eligible to play for Malaysia as his previous appearance for Canada was in a friendly match. He scored his first international goal for Malaysia in the FIFA World Cup Qualifier against Timor-Leste which Malaysia won 7–1.[18]
