AFC announce award shortlist

15 September 2011 11:40

The Asian Football Confederation has announced the preliminary list of contenders for the coveted AFC Player of the Year award.

Iran and South Korea lead the way with three nominations each, while Asian champions Japan have two.

Al Arabi defender Hadi Aghili, Esteghlal striker Farhad Majidi and Zob Ahan midfielder Ghasem Hadadifar are the Iranians nominated, while Wolfsburg midfielder Koo Ja-cheol, Suwon Bluewings striker Ha Tae-goon and team-mate Yeom Ki-hun are the Korean selections.

Keisuke Honda and Takashi Inui's performances for Japan in their victorious AFC Asian Cup campaign earlier this year put them in contention, and former winner Server Djeparov from Uzbekistan has been nominated again.

Ismail Matar (UAE), Younus Mahmoud (Iraq), Deng Zhouxiang (China), Mohammed Noor (Saudi Arabia), Firas Al Khatib (Syria) and Hasan Abdel Fattah (Jordan) are the other players in contention.

The list will be revised next month after the Asian World Cup qualifiers, Olympic qualifiers, AFC Champions League and AFC Cup matches, with the award to be presented on November 23 in Kuala Lumpur.
