Saad was one of the top performers on the pitch during Bangladesh's 2-0 win over Nepal
Bangladesh's versatile winger Saad Uddin has been nominated by Asian Football Confederation (AFC) among the continent’s top 10 national player of the week.
Saad was one of the top performers on the pitch during Bangladesh's 2-0 win over Nepal in the first match of the two-game FIFA friendly series last Friday which was first competitive action for both teams in over eight months.
The Abahani Limited forward exhibited great skill to cutback a defender near the touchline before feeding a delightful cross for club-mate Nabib Newaz Jibon to score the opening goal in only tenth minute.
According to the AFC, Saad had an astonishing 92% pass accuracy in the game along with the lone assist.
The 22-year-old right-winger also created some good chances, roll the ball forward and fall back constantly to keep the games vibrant on his side.
The other best performers in the November international window are from Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Korea, Jordan, and two each from Iran and Iraq. All of the nations are ranked much more higher than Bangladesh in world rankings.
Saad's career touched the peak at the end of last year when his glancing header against India earned Bangladesh their only point in four matches of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers. He is now in Qatar to play the fifth Group E fixture away against the reigning Asian Champions on 4 December.
