Wu Lei's first Espanyol goal draws an estimated 25 million fans in China

Wu Lei
Wu Lei became the first Chinese player to ever score in La Liga on Sunday, and the first in over a decade to score in a big European league.

More than 25 million fans in China were estimated to have watched online as Wu Lei become the first Chinese player to score a goal in one of the big five European leagues for 3,731 days on Saturday.

Wu joined Espanyol from Shanghai SIPG in January, and the international star grabbed the third as Los Periquitos defeated Real Valladolid 3-1 to move into 11th in La Liga.

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

Outmuscled by the physical Iranians and embarrassed...

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...
