Dong Fangzhuo has been named in China's under-23 squad for this summer's Olympic Games in Beijing.

The United striker missed the last three months of the 2007/08 season with a knee injury sustained in a Reserves match against Blackburn in February.

But the 23-year-old proved he was back to full fitness by scoring in China's 4-0 warm-up victory over Malaysia last weekend.

He has now taken his place alongside Charlton's Zheng Zhi – one of three permitted over-age players – in the 22-man party for the tournament, which takes place from August 6-23.

Dong is likely to come up against Reds team-mate Anderson in Beijing as China have been drawn against Brazil, New Zealand and Belgium in Group C.

Should China progress to the latter stages of the tournament, Dong will miss the start of the first-team season but will return in time for the Reserves' new campaign, which gets underway on September 18.

We will miss him big time if he misses the start of next season.
He was awesome last season and deserves his place in the national team.
I really hope we dont sign this plugger Berbatov so Ding gets his chance.
Top bloke is Dong :)

LOL. considering we dont get berbatov, saha gets injured(yet again), campbell goes out on loan, welbeck played for reserves a day before matchday, and rooney got suspended, DONG WILL BE MISSED.

but those happening together, seems unlikely. :p

he will never be good enough for a regular squad place never mind making the bench on match days.
at his age things wont improve for him and i would much rather see 30m spent on a proven striker than taking a chance on a guy who has made little or no impact since his arrival.
