Vietnamese midfielder among best left-footed players in AFC Cup

Nguyen Quang Hai has been chosen as one of five best left footers to play in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Cup.

In the successful run by Hanoi FC at the AFC Cup 2019, where the team reached the interzone finals, Hai was a key player in the starting line up.

Using his great dribbling skills and clever off-ball movement, Hai always causes trouble for the opponent’s defense.

Nguyen Quang Hai takes a free kick during the AFC Cup match with Altyn Asyr in Hanoi, August 20, 2019.

But the factor that made Hai lethal is his left foot. He has used it to make thundering strikes, including some beautiful free kicks that have found the net.

At the AFC Cup 2019, Hai recreated his iconic "rainbow" free kick in the game with Turkmen club Altyn Asyr.

The four other names also on the list are: midfielder Musa Al-Taamari (Jordan); winger Safawi Rasid (Malaysia); forward Altymyrat Annadurdyyew (Turkmenistan); and midfielder Ahmad Zreik (Lebanon).

A key player in Vietnam’s national football team under coach Park Hang-seo, Hai has won widespread acclaim for outstanding performances in major tournaments, including a string of impressive displays at the 2018 AFF Cup and 2019 Asian Cup.

At the moment, Hai is still waiting for play time as the V. League 1 tournament might be postponed until June due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
