In the Super League this season, TEDA's performance is somewhat unsatisfactory, but Tianjin has always been a city with a very football atmosphere. At that time in the 1980s, Tianjin had excellent forwards like Chen Jingang and Zuo Shusheng. Later, there were super fast horse Qubo and "Chinese version of the old horse" Zhang Xiaorui. Here is a look at the five midfielder representatives in the history of Tianjin football. They all have a place in the national football team and deserve praise.

In 1999, TEDA played a very powerful midfielder, he snatched away the honor of the "Rookie King" that year without paying attention. This person was the young Zhang Xiaorui at the time. At that time, Zhang Xiaorui was very energetic, and his delicate footwork was very characteristic of South American players, especially playing under Jin Zhiyang. Later, he had studied in the second German Bundesliga, but after half a year he didn't get much success and chose to return to China. However, he has physical shortcomings, coupled with repeated attacks of old foot and knee injuries, and finally failed to surprise the football. But his gorgeous technology makes people still remember.

In the 1982 World Cup preliminaries, the national football team was grouped with terrifying opponents like Shah, Ke, and Xin after defeating strong teams such as North Korea and Japan. Until the final round of the group stage, we still led New Zealand by 2 points (we only won 1 game by 2 points) plus 5 goal difference. However, China, which could have been able to qualify, was given a knife by Sha and Xin, and finally lost to New Zealand 1:2 in the play-offs and bid farewell to the Spanish World Cup. At that time, the main striker of the national football team was Chen Jingang. In addition, he also participated in the 80 Asian Cup, is also the team's main force. Back then we were only half a step away from the World Cup, but now we still can’t let go.
