Xu Yunlong (simplified Chinese: 徐云龙; traditional Chinese: 徐雲龍; pinyin: Xú Yúnlóng; born 17 February 1979) is a Chinese former footballer who played as a Defender for Beijing Guoan and China national team.

Club career[edit]

Xu Yunlong started his football career with Beijing Guoan in the 1999 season, making thirteen league appearances and quickly established himself as a versatile player.[1] By the following season, he continued to gain considerably more playing time for Beijing and would often be used as a right back where his pace was quickly exploited; however, after several seasons, he played increasingly more at centre back and become an integral member of the club's defense.[2] Xu's importance towards the team was shown in the 2008 league season when he would be named as the club's vice captain and then later as their captain, leading the club to the league title during the 2009 season.

On 26 February 2017, Xu retired from football and became the Commercial Director of Beijing Guoan.[3]

International career[edit]

Xu made his debut for the Chinese national team on 25 May 2000 in a 2-0 loss against Yugoslavia.[4] Under then manager Bora Milutinović, Xu's international career flourished by keeping previous right back Sun Jihai out of the national team during the 2000 AFC Asian Cup. However, he was forced out of action due to illness and Sun regained his place within the team; nevertheless, his performances were still good enough to be called up the squad that participated in the 2002 FIFA World Cup.[5]
