This is a Chinese name; the family name is Lee.

Lee Kin Wo (Chinese: 李健和; Jyutping: lei5 gin6 wo4, born 20 October 1967 in Hong Kong) is one of the most famous footballers in Hong Kong and his most usual position is right wing. He is voted as the Hong Kong Footballer of the Year for 3 times. His long hair is also a trademark for football fans.

Lee Kin Wo made his debut in Hong Kong First Division League on 13 October 1985 when he was 18 years old. He is most memorable for participating the friendly match South China Athletic Association (Lee is loaned from Eastern for that match, along with Dale Tempest) versus São Paulo, the Brazilian team with national representatives Cafu, Leonardo Araújo and Zetti at that time. Finally South China won the match by 4–2 and Lee scored the fourth goal of his team.

He was appointed to be the head coach of Hong Kong national football team on 22 May 2007.[2] The first match he led was a friendly match played away against Indonesia national football team. Hong Kong lost by 0–3 in the match.

He resides with his family on Peng Chau island.

Kicking Referee Incident[edit]

In May 2000, during an international friendly hosted by Macau, Lee kicked the football toward the upper body of the Macau referee Choi Kuok-kun, after several unfair decisions were being made in favor of the home side.[3][4] Hong Kong eventually won the match by 1-0 and Choi was banned to officiating for life.
