Records Breaker Titled as “the Greatest Team over the Two Decades” 

A series of records in Chinese football have been broken by GZE over the last 4 years. For instance, GZE is the first club clinched top league title as a newly-promoted team in Chinese professional football history (in 2011), GZE is the record holder for most undefeated games in succession (23 games in 2011) and the first title defender in CSL (in 2012) as well as the best start creator in CSL (in 2013). GZE also maintained a series of other records, including the highest half-season points (41 points in 2013), highest points in a single season (77 points in 2013), most goals scored in top league (78 goals in 2013), most goal differences in top league (60 goal differences in 2013), the greatest points differences with runner-up (18 points in 2013), least defeated games record in a single season (1 defeated game only in 2013), most wins record in a single season (24 games in 2013), highest average points of games (2.57 points in 2013), the first football team with 4 straight titles in a top league (2014)and the team with most CSL titles(2014). 

According to the latest Football/Soccer Ranking List released by “footballdatabase”, a professional online football data statistics media, GZE, as the leading team in CSL, is ranked 1620th in the list and 1st among Asian teams, followed by Brazil CBF Fluminense Football Club, S.F.C and other internationally renowned football clubs. 

It was considered by sports commentator that over the 20 years of professional reform of Chinese football, no one was capable of competing with GZE in clinching 4 straight titles of top league. As a first football team with 4 successive titles, GZE was no doubt the greatest football team over the 20 years of professional reform of Chinese football.
