Tang Miao (Chinese: 唐淼; pinyin: Táng Miǎo; born 16 October 1990 in Dalian) is a Chinese footballer who currently plays for Guangzhou R&F in the Chinese Super League.

Club career

Born in Dalian, Tang moved to Beijing and joined Beijing Guoan youth team at the age of twelve in 2002. He was loaned to Beijing's satellite team Beijing Guoan Talent, which would play as a foreign team in Singapore's S. League in the 2010 season. On 7 September 2010, the club was involved in a brawl during a match with Young Lions at Jalan Besar Stadium. Tang was fined S$2,000 by the Football Association of Singapore for participating the brawl.[1] He was released by Beijing Guoan at the end of the season.

After an unsuccessful trial at Shenzhen Ruby, Tang was signed by Shenzhen Phoenix, which later changed its club name to Guangzhou R&F, in March 2011. His debut for the club came on 27 March 2011 in a 1–1 home draw against Shenyang Dongjin. He made 17 appearances in the 2011 league season as Guangzhou R&F finished second place in the second division and won promotion back to the top flight at the first attempt. On 23 June 2012, he scored his first senior goal in a 3–2 home defeat against Qingdao Jonoon.[2] On 13 July 2015, Tang suffered a rupture of anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in a league match against Shanghai SIPG, ruling him out for the rest of the season.[3] He made his return on 23 April 2016 in a 1–1 home draw against Jiangsu Suning.[4] He scored one goal in 25 league appearances in the 2016 season and extended his contract with the club for five years on 25 November 2016.[5]

International career

On 23 May 2012, Tang received his first call up for China for the international friendly against Spain and Vietnam.[6] On 8 June, he made his debut for China in a 3–0 victory against Vietnam, coming on as a substitute for Yu Hai in the 87th minute.
