Shanghai SIPG striker Hulk
Shanghai SIPG brought in Braziilan striker Hulk for a CSL transfer record fee.

How important is continental performance to a league's standing and reputation? It's a question which has dogged the Premier League's claim to being the "greatest league in the world" over recent seasons, at the same time as English sides' Champions League performances have dropped off.

China vs. South Korea in Champions League and World Cup showdowns

Shanghai SIPG face Jeonbuk for a place in the Asian Champions League semifinals later this month.

The next few weeks produces a fascinating club and country China vs. South Korea football trilogy that could prove to be as big as a Hollywood blockbuster.

Luiz Felipe Scolari has plenty of experience in management.

Guangzhou Evergrande boss Luiz Felipe Scolari has told China national team boss Gao Hongbo to ignore the advice of others and back his own decisions as the nation gears up for the next stage of their attempt to qualify for Russia 2018.

Gao's team face South Korea in the first match of the final phase of Asian World Cup qualifying in Seoul on Sept. 1, with China failing to reach the final tournament since making their debut in 2002.

"No matter what people are telling you, do what you think is correct,"...

Newcastle's big role in China-Australia footballing partnership - Martin Lee

ESPN FC's Jason Dasey and PJ Roberts discuss new Chinese ownership for Newcastle Jets and the Bakrie Group's plans to sell Brisbane Roar.

As China and Australia become ever more intertwined, there is one humble club leading the way in nurturing the relationship between the two countries from a football perspective.

A-League outfit the Newcastle Jets have recently been purchased by Chinese businessman Martin Lee, and his dream of connecting his homeland with Australia -- the current champions of Asia -- is starting to come to fruition.

Lee, who also invests heavily in Chinese football through Shenzhen Renren, as well as European football,...
