TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran national football team forward Sardar Azmoun was shortlisted for the AFC Player of the Week.
He stole the show in two games against Lebanon and Syria in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification.
The-afc.com picked out Azmoun as one of the candidates for the accolade.
2 games (180 minutes), 2 goals, 7 shots, 1 shot assist
With Mehdi Taremi not part of the squad, the pressure on Azmoun to deliver Iranian goals was even higher than usual, but the Zenit star made crucial contributions in both of Team Melli’s wins this past week.
He bagged the 91st minute equalizer which set in motion a fabulous late comeback against Lebanon, then scored a score opener against Syria to take his side within touching distance of Qatar 2022.
