Wu Xi (Chinese: 吴曦; pinyin: Wú Xī; born 19 February 1989) is a Chinese footballer who currently plays for Jiangsu Suning in the Chinese Super League.

Club career[edit]

Wu Xi started his football career with Hebei Tiangong in 2008 when the club was formed and joined the third tier.[1] While the club only played one season in the division, Wu's development particularly with the Chinese national youth teams was impressive enough for top tier side Shanghai Shenhua to be interested in his services, signing for the club on 17 November 2009.[2] At the start of the 2010 season, Wu would make his debut for the club on 3 April 2010 in a 2-1 win against Nanchang Bayi.[3] He scored his first goal for the club on 17 April 2010 in a 2-0 win against Tianjin Teda.[4]

Before the start of the 2013 season, Wu transferred to fellow Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning.[5] He made his debut for the club on 26 February 2013 in a 5-1 loss against FC Seoul in the 2013 AFC Champions League.[6]

International career[edit]

Wu was first called up to the Chinese under-19 national team in 2007 and took part in the 2008 AFC U-19 Championship. A regular with the side, he could only aid the team to the quarter-finals after he personally missed a penalty in a penalty shootout against Uzbekistan.[7] After the tournament, he would move up to the Chinese under-23 national team and then to the senior squad when he made his debut for then manager Gao Hongbo's last squad on 28 September 2011 in a 6-1 win against Laos during 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification.[8]

On 24 December 2014, Wu was named in China's squad for the 2015 AFC Asian Cup in Australia.[9] In the team's second group match, he scored the equalizing goal as China won 2-1 against Uzbekistan to qualify for the knockout stage.[10]
