India's Ashique Kuruniyan has been chosen as last week's Fans' Asian Player of the Week, following his impressive performance in his team's 2-0 win over Sri Lanka in the SAFF Cup 2018.

The 21-year-old scored the opener which broke the deadlock. He was also named Goal's Asian Player of the Week. 

Ashique came up with the morale booster that India needed. Sumeet Passi dropped deep to receive the ball and released the FC Pune City winger into the space inside the box. The Lankan defence was unaware of Ashique's run in behind and stood helpess as he executed a calm finish into the bottom corner. 

Also in the fray for the honour were Lallianzuala Chhangte and Vishal Kaith, who were also impressive in their side's win. 

But the fans made their voice count as Kuruniyan received a whopping majority of the votes.
