Mo Heng (Bing) Tan[3] (born February 28, 1913, date of death unknown) was the goalkeeper of the Dutch East Indies football team during the 1938 FIFA World Cup in France.[4] The Dutch East Indian team only played one match after losing 0–6 to Hungary. He also had a mascot for the match. Tan became the only ex-Dutch East Indian team player to represent independent Indonesia in 1951, in an unofficial match against a Sino-Malayan Selection from Singapore.[5]
