Southeast Asia Player of the Week
Zairo Anuar
AGE 31
POSITION Midfielder
PLAYS FOR Terengganu FA

Goal Malaysia Chief Editor Falah Abdullah: "After a lukewarm season with Kelantan last year, the classy playmaker seems to have found his old inspired self with some solid displays for high-flying Terengganu this season. Zairo propelled his team to a dominant 3-0 win against ATM in mid-week with defence-splitting passes that wreaked havoc to B. Sathianathan's team before scoring a trademark freekick against The Red Warriors in the East Coast Derby last weekend."

Congratulations to Zairo Anuar, Goal's 17th Southeast Asia Player of the Week winner!

Honourable Mentions

Safuwan Baharudin - LionsXII

Goal Singapore Senior Editor Teng Kiat: The centre-back was the best player for his side as they slumped to a disappointing 1-1 draw at home against T-Team FC. Got his team going by robbing an opponent before thumping a superb 25-yard effort that bounced into the bottom corner for his second goal in as many games. Was a tower at the back as well and created a huge nuisance of himself when thrown upfront late on, with a header cleared off the line as he came agonisingly close to winning the match late on.


Andritany Ardhiyasa - Indonesia

Goal Indonesia Chief Editor Agung Harsya : "Andritany made a strong debut for the national team as Indonesia defeated Andorra 1-0 in an international friendly match in Alzira, Spain, partly thanks to Andritany's reflexes and calmness in goal. Coach Alfred Riedl fielded no less than five debutants in the game in order to give international experience for young players. In the 31st minute, Andorra received a free-kick just outside the penalty box but Marc Pujol's effort was saved by Andritany. In total, he made three important saves."

Erik Paartalu - SCG Muangthong United

Goal Thailand Deputy Editor Thana Wongmanee: The Aussie midfielder has snatched the starting berth in the team from the club's marquee anchorman Dagno Siaka with his consistent display. He contained BEC TERO Sasana's blazing attack and limited them to just one goal which was cancelled out by Jay Bothroyd late in the game. With this kind of impact and performance,the Socceroos should consider him seriously for Brazil 2014.
