Player to Watch

Parvizdzhon Umarbaev (Tajikistan)

During the last few years, Parvizdzhon Umarbaev has been a key member of the Tajikistan, shielding the back four and linking up play for the team. One goal has been scored by him in three games, but that goal came against Pakistan. Calm and composed on the ball, he breaks up play well and times his interceptions perfectly to maintain defensive solidarity for his team. 

 Salem Al-Dawsari (Saudi Arabia) 

As a frontman for Al Hilal, he scored 17 goals in all competitions this season. In the past, he played a crucial role in the victory over Argentina, and has become a key player for the national team. In Saudi Arabia’s quest for a World Cup spot, his experience and leadership will be crucial. He has already scored two goals and looked dangerous in the attack.
