Reporter Chen Yong reported that on September 21, the Center for International Sports Research (CIES) released a report that counted the appearances of U21 players in 80 major leagues around the world since 2015. As a result, the Super League has played 3.9% of U21 players. It has become the league with the fewest minutes of U21 players in the world.
So, what about the appearances of the Super League players in the 2020 season? After the 12th round, the reporter counted the U21 appearances and data of the 16 Super League teams. It is not difficult to find out that in the 2020 Super League, the U21 players' appearance is even more bleak, and the playing time is only slightly higher than 3%. If Dai Weijun is removed, it is actually only about 2.6%, which is a third drop from the past five years.
In the first 12 rounds of the 2020 Chinese Super League, the total playing time of U21 players is 5753 minutes, while the total playing time of Chinese Super League players is approximately equal to 95,040 minutes (12 league rounds, 8 games per round, 22 players, 90 minutes), then, the 2020 Super League U21 players accounted for about 3% of the playing time, the actual proportion will be slightly higher than this number, because some games have players sent off.
As of the 12th round, all U21 players have scored a total of 4 goals, including Luneng’s Guo Tianyu 2 goals, Huang Hai’s Zhou Junchen 1 goal, and Shenzhen’s Dai Weijun 1 goal.
In addition, Dai Weijun also sent out an assist.
Of course, Han Jiaqi is R&F's main goalkeeper, and Zhu Chenjie is Shenhua's main central defender. They performed well and performed well in defensive data.
So far, there are only 5 players who have performed well among the U21 U21 players, namely Luneng’s Guo Tianyu (2 goals), Kaisa’s Dai Weijun (1 goal and 1 assist), Huang Hai’s Zhou Junchen (1 goal), and R&F’s Han Jiaqi (main goalkeeper) and Shenhua's Zhu Chenjie (main central defender)
In addition, Liu Ruofan played a lot of time, but did not have good offensive data. Wu Shaocong of Evergrande, He Yupeng of Dalian native, and Xu Haofeng of Kaisa also had certain performances.
Judging from the total playing time of U21 players, the clubs performing better are Kaisa (1315 minutes), R&F (1150 minutes), Shenhua (850 minutes), TEDA (766 minutes), Huanghai (762 minutes) and Luneng (443 Minutes), among which U21 players from Luneng, Kaisa and Qingdao Huanghai have scored or assisted.
There are no U21 players in these 5 clubs.
In addition, China Fortune U21 players only have 1 minute of playing time, while Shanghai SIPG has only 9 minutes of playing time.
[Comprehensive analysis] A cruel reality: No one will use the national football team in the future
The proportion of U21 players playing in the first 12 rounds of this season is lower than 3.9% of the past 5 years. This is a very unoptimistic figure. However, it should be noted that:
One, there have been no U23 policies in some seasons in the past 5 years;
Second, three U21 players in the past five years are in the double age group, namely 94 (2015 season), 96 (2017 season), and 98 (2019 season). There are very few double-age players. The 99 age group is theoretically an age group with more players.
Third, Dai Weijun is a Hong Kong player from China. If Dai Weijun is removed from a player belonging to the Chinese Football Association, the U21 players currently available for the national team in the Super League will only play 4882 minutes, and the proportion will drop to less than 2.6%. Said that it has actually fallen by 33.3% over the past five years.
Therefore, the reality is very cruel, which clearly illustrates a problem: the quality of Chinese youth training has been continuously declining, and even the 1999 age group is not the lowest point of Chinese football. The 2001 age group may be more embarrassing, and in the next 15 years, No one can use the national football will be a cruel reality that cannot be disputed.
