Southeast Asia Player of the Week
Azamuddin Akil
AGE 28
POSITION Striker/Winger

Goal Malaysia Deputy Editor Sadat Osman: "Usually an out-and-out striker, Azamuddin Akil was deployed to the right flank in the 2013 Malaysia Cup final. It was his darting runs that kick-started the attacking flow for the Elephants. He easily skipped past defenders with his pace to deliver crosses into the danger area for his colleagues to attack and in one instance, Matias Conti made it count to give Pahang the title-winning goal. At the end of the game, and rightfully so, he was named the official Man of the Match."

Congratulations to Azamuddin Akil, Goal's 9th Southeast Asia Player of the Week winner!

Honourable Mentions

Pipob Onmo - Chonburi FC

Goal Thailand Deputy Editor Thana Wongmanee: "The Sharks' captain showed he still had in him at the age of 34.

A perfect curtain call for season 2013 and also for Withya Laohakul's coaching career as he'll take the Technical Director role next season."

Tomi Juric - Western Sydney Wanderers

Goal Australia Chief Editor Iain Strachan: "Arguably lucky to still be on the pitch after a bad tackle on Isaias Sanchez, Juric was nevertheless the hero for the Wanderers on Friday, netting twice, the first from a driving run and fierce strike and the second a well-taken header, to help them come from behind and claim all three points in front of their own fans. The 22-year-old's impressive performance could not have been better timed, with new national team coach Ange Postecoglou set to name his squad this week for the international friendly against Costa Rica on November 19."

Zulham Zamrun - Indonesia

Goal Indonesia's Eric Noveanto: "The Mitra Kukar player's presence in the national team squad gave Jacksen F.Tiago another attacking option within the team.

Qiu Li - Balestier Khalsa FC

Goal Singapore Senior Editor Teng Kiat: "The China-born Singapore international was inspirational as he struck a brace to lead the Tigers to a 3-0 victory over Woodlands in their last home game of the season. A constant threat throughout the game, Qiu did not let his earlier misses in the first half deter him as he ploughed on after the break to add the crucial second goal with a neat finish, before rounding off the victory with a tap-in."
