Honourable Mentions

Le Van Thang - Vietnam U23

Goal Vietnam's Xuan Thanh: "Le Van Thang had two excellent matches at the Ho Chi Minh Challenge Cup 2013. He opened the scoring in the 2-1 win against Galatasaray U23 and had two goals in the 3-1 win over Santos U23. With this impressive performances, Van Thang will surely become a key player for Vietnam at the 27th SEA Games."

Jaslee Hatta - Balestier Khalsa

Goal Singapore Senior Editor Teng Kiat: "The defender has been a key figure in his team's defence this season ( 26 goals conceded in 23 games) the league's third-best record. Jaslee was outstanding as Balestier kept out league champions Tampines Rovers, whose attack has registered 51 goals this season, in a 0-0 draw to delay the latter's crowning."

Safiq Rahim - Johor Darul Takzim

Goal Malaysia Deputy Editor Sadat Osman: "Safiq Rahim featured in the 2013 Malaysia Cup semifinal against the side that beat them in the FA Cup final in June, Kelantan. He suffered a dip in form and had heaps of criticism thrown his way. However, when faced with tough competition in Badhri Radzi, the same man who is in contention of a position in the national team with him, the 26-year-old stepped up his game with a goal and a performance worthy of praise. Safiq was defensively tenacious as he helped JDT win the ball in the middle of the park and immediately turned defence in to attack for the Southern Tigers."

Alfin Tuasalamony - Indonesia U23

Goal Indonesia's Eric Noveanto: "The Belgium-based defender had a key role in Indonesia's success to finish as runner-up at the Islamic Solidarity Games 2013. He was not only good in defence but his movement when overlapping often disrupted the opponent's defense. Alfin had an excellent performance during the tournament, especially when he determined Indonesia's victory in the semifinal, defeating Turkey U23 with his goal in the penalty shootout."
