Guangzhou Daily (all-media reporter Zhang Zhe) The second round of the Chinese Super League Guangzhou Evergrande vs. Beijing Guoan life and death battle will start tomorrow night. Before the game, Evergrande received a good news. Jiang Guangtai has been approved by FIFA and confirmed that he can represent the national football team.
Jiang Guangtai is a naturalized player of Chinese descent. This year, he has represented Evergrande to participate in the Chinese Super League as a domestic player. However, because he had previously participated in official competitions on behalf of the England national team, he has not been able to obtain the FIFA association status conversion permit. However, after FIFA revised the rules for identifying naturalized players in September this year, Jiang Guangtai was already qualified to represent the Chinese men's football team in official matches. During the national football training in Shanghai in early October, Jiang Guangtai and Fernando both entered the national football training team for the first time. And yesterday, FIFA's change of membership of Jiang Guangtai has been confirmed by FIFA documents, which also means that he can formally represent the national football team in the next top 40 games.
Jiang Guangtai has been serving as the main central defender in Evergrande this season. The outside world generally believes that his ability is sufficient to serve as the backbone of the national football's future defense. Getting this news before the Jing Sui battle is undoubtedly a good thing for Jiang Guangtai, and may further help him play a better role in the next key games of the Super League.
National football coach Li Tie is currently in the Suzhou Division to investigate the Chinese Super League championship team. A few days ago, Li Tie, Chairman of the Chinese Football Association, Chen Xuyuan, and others also personally went into battle and played a friendly match with some domestic media reporters who interviewed in the Suzhou Division to share happy football. Next, Li Tie continued to closely monitor the performance of each international team in the Suzhou Division.
