Following their re-entry into the Federation of International Football Associations in 1979, China PR finally qualified for a World Cup on their sixth attempt winning all 6 of their FIFA World Cup 2002 Japan Korea 1st Round Asian Qualifiers and finishing with a record of 6 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. Then at the 2004 AFC Asian Cup which they hosted, they qualified for the finals tournament for the first time in 5 tournaments since 1984. The next year at the East Asian Football Championships 2005 Finals Tournament they beat higher ranked Japan and Korea Rep. to claim their first ever international tournament title. However their campaigns to qualify for the 2006 and 2010 World Cups both ended at the qualification stage. Their much anticipated performance at the Beijing Olympics also ended at the group stage. The national team’s popularity has taken a hit and hopes are low but in May 2009 former national team striker GAO Hongbo was appointed as head coach. Hopes are that the China PR national team can be reborn under the new coach who’s experiences include leading Changchun Yatai to their first ever CSL title victory.

As of April 2013

Winners of the AFC Women’s Asian Cup 7 times in a row between 1986 and 1999. The Chinese women’s national team became known as the “Queens of Asia” due to their outstanding performances in making it to the finals of the FIFA Women’s World Cup (1999) and the Olympics (1996). Despite losing the Asian Cup to DPR Korea in 2001 and 2003, they won it back for the first time in 3 tournaments in 2006 thanks to the youthful energy of (then 18 year old) MVP FW MA Xiaoxu and FW HAN Duan and earned a new nickname “Healthy Queens”. However in February 2008 at the East Asian Women’s Football Championships Finals tournament they came in 3rd behind Japan and DPR Korea. In May and June that same year they were knocked off the throne as queens of Asia by DPR Korea at the AFC Asian Cup. Then, hoping for a home town victory at the Beijing Olympics they lost to Japan to be knocked out at the quarter-final stage. Can they overcome this difficult period? They are aiming to return to being known on the international stage as “Strong China”.
