You may have noticed that the Chinese team is sometimes referred to as “Steel Roses”. Many other teams have their own nicknames. In fact, Canada and USA are the only two soccer teams at the World Cup that don't have official nicknames.
The first appearance of the name was after the iconic 1999 World Cup final match, where the Chinese team lost to the U.S by a single penalty kick.
After that loss, the Chinese team was nicknamed “Steel Roses” by their fans; a legacy that has been passed down to every team since.
