Zheng Zheng (Chinese: 郑铮; pinyin: Zhèng Zhēng; born 11 July 1989) is a Chinese footballer who currently plays for Shandong Luneng in the Chinese Super League.

Club career[edit]

Zheng Zheng started his football career playing with Shandong Luneng's youth academy and was promoted to the first team during the 2008 season, where despite not making an appearance for the team he would still receive a league title medal from the club.[1] He received his promotion to the senior team in 2010 when he made his debut for the club in a 1–0 loss against Pohang Steelers on 24 March 2010.[2] Despite the defeat, Zheng would go on to become a vital member of the team and would go on to score his first goal for the club on 16 May 2010 in a 1–0 win against Shenzhen Ruby.[3] Zheng would have such a breakthrough season that he would not only win the league title with Shandong, but also personally win the Chinese Football Association Young Player of the Year award to cap off an extremely successful season.[4] On 23 June 2016, Zheng suffered a rupture of ligament in his left knee in the training, ruling him out for the rest of the season..[5] He made his return on 2 May 2017 in a 2017 Chinese FA Cup match against Jilin Baijia.[6]

International career[edit]

Zheng would play for the Chinese under-20 national team that took part in the 2008 AFC U-19 Championship where he played in all four games for China in a tournament where they were knocked out in the quarterfinals. Zheng would still move up to the Chinese under-23 national team where he played in the 2008 East Asian Games. He played in two games as China were knocked out in the group stage. Zheng would also make the squad that took part in the 2010 Asian Games; however, he was injured throughout the tournament and didn't make any appearances.

Zheng made his first appearance for the Chinese national team on 6 October 2011 in a friendly match against United Arab Emirates. Zheng scored his first two international goals on 15 November 2011 in a 4–0 win against Singapore during 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification.
