Liu Xiaodong (simplified Chinese: 刘晓东; traditional Chinese: 劉曉東; pinyin: Liú Xiǎodōng; born January 14, 1989 in Changchun, Jilin) is a Chinese football striker who currently plays for Changchun Yatai in the Chinese Super League.

Club career

A native of Changchun Liu Xiaodong began his football career when he joined the Changchun Yatai youth team where he eventually graduated to the senior team at the start of the 2008 Chinese Super League season. He started his professional football career when he made his debut against Wuhan Guanggu on April 27, 2008 in a 1-0 win (though this score was changed to 3-0 because of Wuhan's withdrawal from the league) and his appearance was to make him the first native Changchun player to actually play for Changchun Yatai.[1] He later scored his first senior club goal against Shenzhen on June 25, 2008 in a 2-1 win.[2] Throughout the season he was mostly used as substitute to gain playing time and eventually made sixteen league appearances.

International career

Liu Xiaodong was called up to the senior Chinese squad to take part in a friendly against Honduras on March 29, 2011 and went on to make his debut when he came on as a late substitute for Hao Junmin in a 3-0 victory.[3]
