Goal's Asian Player of the Week - India's Gurpreet Singh Sandhu

The 26-year-old was in sensational form against China...

India managed a creditable 0-0 away draw in an international friendly against China. 

That the 97th-ranked side managed to hold the 76th-ranked team coached by Marcello Lippi was mainly down to goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu who was in top form under the bar. 

He made a flurry of saves throughout the match with several of them standing out. At the 30-minute mark, Gurpreet stretched his leg out and made a save from a seemingly dangerous attack.

The Indian goalie made a brilliant goal-line save in the 77th minute as China kept attacking before making a flying save off an injury-time header. 

The Bengaluru FC custodian's impressive show handed India a great result and he is rightly named as Goal's Asian Player of the Week!
