Akram Afif (Qatar)
Qatar’s free-scoring winger will be looking to add to his incredible goal tally and lead the host nation to maiden FIFA Arab Cup title.
After becoming the first Qatari to sign for a La Liga club when he joined Villareal in 2016, Afif has gone from strength to strength, being named Asian Footballer of the year in 2019.
Under the tutelage of Barcelona legend Xavi, his former club coach at Qatari side Al Sadd, Afif has become a player capable of both creating and scoring goals – a skillset opposition defences will need to be wary of.
Afif netted the opener in Qatar’s 2019 AFC Cup victory against Japan and will be leading his nation as they look to add the FIFA Arab Cup to their growing collection of silverware.
