Club career

Liu Binbin started his football career when he joined Shandong Luneng's youth academy in 2005 and was described as a potentially hot prospect for the future. He was loaned out to Ligue 2 club FC Metz along with Xie Pengfei for youth training in 2010. During the 2011 season, Liu returned to Shandong and was then sent out to China League Two side Shandong Youth. He scored his first goal for Shandong Youth on 3 July 2011 in a 4-0 win against Qinghai Youth.[1] Liu was then promoted to the club's first team by Henk ten Cate during the 2012 season. He made his debut for the club on 10 March 2012 in a 2-1 loss against Guizhou Renhe.[2]

International career

Liu was first called up to the Chinese under-20 national team by Su Maozhen in June 2010[3] and played for the under-20 national team at the 2010 AFC U-19 Championship. He continued to be called up to the under-20 side by Jan Olde Riekerink who took charge the team in 2011 and played in the 2011 Toulon Tournament. Liu scored one goal in three appearances during 2012 AFC U-19 Championship qualification as his team qualified for the 2012 AFC U-19 Championship. Liu made his debut for the Chinese national team on 13 December 2014 in a 4-0 win against Kyrgyzstan; however, the match was not recognised as an international "A" match by FIFA.
