Club career

Qu Bo started his football career playing for Tianjin Locomotive's youth team where he was spotted by and then transferred to top-tier side Qingdao in 2000. He would quickly establish himself as an exciting young player and go on to play in seventeen league games while scoring eight goals, which would be enough to personally win the Chinese Football Association Young Player of the Year award at the end of the 2000 league season. [1] Qu would continue to be a vital member of the team and after playing in the 2002 FIFA World Cup where he would draw considerable interest from Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur where he had a month-long stint with them before leaving due to the lack of a work permit. [2] On his return to Qingdao, he would show his importance to the team by helping the team win the club's first ever Chinese FA Cup at the end of the 2002 league season. [3]

On 22 February 2010, after spending ten years at Qingdao, Qu transferred to top-tier side Shaanxi Chanba. [4] He soon made his debut for the club in a league game against Dalian Shide on 28 March 2010 in a 1–1 draw. [5] After waiting several months, he would eventually score his first goal for the club on 14 July 2010 in a 2–1 win against Shanghai Shenhua. [6] At the beginning of the 2012 season, Qu followed the club when it decided to move to Guizhou and rename themselves Guizhou Renhe. [7]

On 3 June 2014, Qu transferred to China League One side Qingdao Hainiu. [8] He made his debut for the club on 19 July 2014 in a 4–1 loss to Shijiazhuang Yongchang and scored his first goal for the club on 27 July 2014 in a 2–1 win against Chengdu Tiancheng.

On 5 January 2016, Qu transferred to his hometown club Tianjin Teda in the Chinese Super League. [9] He announced his retirement on 2 March 2017. [10]

International career

Qu's lightning pace first caught the eye of many at the 2000 AFC Youth Championship where he scored four goals for his country. [11] After playing in the 2001 FIFA World Youth Championship, he would quickly catch the attention of Bora Milutinovic who included him into the 2002 FIFA World Cup squad where he preferred to place Qu at the wing so he can get the best out of the young prospect's pace. [11] Since his initial rise to the national team, Qu has had difficulty in retaining his position as a consistent member of the team. He was not selected for the 2004 AFC Asian Cup squad and was forced out with injury in the 2007 AFC Asian Cup squad. He was however brought back to the national team for several qualifying games and worked his way back into the side. [12]
