Steevy Chong Hue (Chinese: 斯蒂维·张; born 26 January 1990) is a Tahitian footballer of Chinese background who plays as a striker for A.S. Tefana in the Tahitian First Division.

Background[edit]

Chong Hue is of Hakka Chinese ancestry from Longgang, Shenzhen, China. The area was formerly known as Bao'an in Shenzhen.

Club career[edit]

Chong Hue began his career playing for AS Samine as a teenager before joining A.S. Dragon in the Tahiti First Division in 2010. In 2011, Belgian Third Division side Bleid-Gaume signed Chong Hue and compatriot Alvin Tehau, however they did not make any appearances for the club due to its economic difficulties at the time and decided to return to Tahiti. After his performance in the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup, he earned much praise and became linked to several professional clubs.

On 26 July 2013, it was confirmed that Chong Hue had joined French Ligue 1 club FC Lorient on a 15-day trial. He played in several pre-season friendly matches for the club.[2]

International career[edit]

He has represented Tahiti at both the domestic and international level.[3] Most notably he scored the winning goal in the 2012 OFC Nations Cup final securing the first ever international title for his country. He also took part in Tahiti's campaign in the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup.

2012 OFC Nations Cup[edit]

Steevy Chong Hue was selected in Tahiti's 23-man squad for the 2012 OFC Nations Cup by coach Eddy Etaeta. He scored his first international goal in Tahiti's first game of the tournament against Samoa in the 61st minute. He scored his second international goal in Tahiti's second game of the tournament against New Caledonia, scoring the winner in a 4–3 victory. On 10 June, in the final, he scored the only goal of the game on the 10th minute against New Caledonia, securing Tahiti their first ever international title and qualification for the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup representing Oceania.[4]

2013 FIFA Confederations Cup[edit]

Chong Hue was included in the 23-man Tahiti squad for the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup.[5] He played in all three games Tahiti played against Nigeria, Spain, and Uruguay. He played well above expectations in the competition especially against Nigeria in which he several times caused problems to the opposition defence, and in particular to the Nigerian right-back Efe Ambrose of whom he often outpaced down the left flank.[6]
