The 28-year-old, who will be out of contract at The Valley at the end of June, is set to captain his country in what will be his first appearance since the 2008 Olympics. It will also be Zheng's first taste of life under new coach Gao Hongbo, who took over from Vladimir Petrovic following China's failure to qualify for the 2010 World Cup. "It is the foundation of a new team after our failure to qualify for the World Cup, so we have to display our fighting spirit, morale and unity," said Zheng.
