Vietnamese star footballer Nguyen Quang Hai has been nominated by Fox Sports Asia among nine “prolific attackers” of Asian football.

On the 66th anniversary of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC), the verified Facebook page of Fox Sports Asia has compiled a list of nine of “Asia’s current heroes, future stars, and all-time legends,” with Vietnam’s Hai among them.

“9 prolific attackers, but you can only pick THREE!” it wrote on Friday, asking fans to select their favorite front three out of the nine players.

The list includes Vietnam's Nguyen Quang Hai, Indonesia's Bambang Pamungkas, Iran's Ali Daei, Thailand's Chanathip Songkrasin, Singapore's Khairul Amri, South Korea's Son Heung Min, the Philippines' Stephan Schrock, Japan's Hidetoshi Nakata, and Malaysia's Safawi Rasid.

Nguyen Quang Hai, 23, plays as an attacking midfielder for Hanoi F.C., which is in Vietnam’s top-tier V-League 1, and the Vietnamese national team.

In 2018, he was placed 15th out of 24 finalists for the Best Footballer in Asia award organized by Fox Sports Asia and Titan Sports after a vote by a panel of sports journalists and football experts.

One year later, he was in the top 17 best footballers in Asia voted in the same award.

Hai is regarded as among the first choices of South Korean head coach Park Hang Seo for the midfielder role in major tournaments played by Vietnam's national football team and U23 squad.

Last month, Hai joined dozens of footballers from the AFC in the ‘Break The Chain’ campaign to raise awareness of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

In a video, he urged everyone to “avoid gathering in crowded places, wear masks, and wash your hands regularly to protect yourself.”
