Shangai SIPG coy on star scorer Wu Lei's links to La Liga side Espanyol

Shanghai SIPG have refused to comment on reports in Spain that star player Wu Lei is set to sign for Espanyol.

Wu is the biggest name in Chinese football after finishing the 2018 Chinese Super League season as top scorer to help Shanghai win a first ever championship. He also shone in the 2019 Asian Cup earlier in January, helping the national team to the quarterfinal stage.

After being linked recently with Wolverhampton Wanderers in the English Premier League, Shanghai may have to face up to losing...

Asian Cup: Iran and Japan advance to semifinals

Iran advanced to their first semifinal since 2004.

Regional heavyweights Iran underlined their Asian Cup title credentials with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Marcello Lippi's China on Thursday to reach the semifinals of the continental championship for the first time since 2004.

Goals from forwards Mehdi Taremi, Sardar Azmoun and Karim Ansarifard combined with a record-equalling fifth straight clean sheet was enough to set up a last-four date with four-times champions Japan in Al Ain next Monday.

Son Heung-min's South Korea overcame China, but Team Dragon still have Wu Lei to call on

Uzbekistan prevailed 2-1 over Oman in their 2019 AFC Asian Cup opener courtesy of Eldor Shomurodov's late winner.

South Korea have Son Heung-min, and China have Wu Lei. The two may not be at the same level in terms of talent or renown, but the Chinese attacker is as important to Marcello Lippi's side as Son is to Paulo Bento's. This was made all the more clear on Wednesday when the teams met in their final group game at the Asian Cup.

The Chinese were always going to find it tough against South Korea in Abu Dhabi. But without Wu -- sidelined by a shoulder injury -- it was almost mission impossible as they sank...

Sven-Göran Eriksson: Football needs India, China and USA

Philippines coach Sven-Göran Eriksson has tipped India to advance to the round of 16 at the AFC Asian Cup, ahead of their crucial game against Bahrain, adding that their 4-1 win against Thailand was the "biggest surprise" of the tournament.

Eriksson, who took England to the quarterfinals of the 2002 World Cup, will see his team play a must-win match themselves, against Kyrgyzstan on January 16 in Dubai, and believes advancement in the Asian Cup will be great for both countries,...

Marcello Lippi's legacy remains intact, but success with China falls short

Forget England. The real impossible job in football is China, as Marcello Lippi knows well as he comes to the end of his two-and-a-bit years.

The Asian Cup that is currently taking place in the United Arab Emirates is his last chance to leave any kind of legacy in the world's most populous country. It has not been a smooth ride since the 2006 World Cup winner took the job in October 2016. Even Lippi's record and reputation does not mean that one coach can change much in the complex world of Chinese...
