    Meet your Persian Love Today
    After reading the discussion about if Son or Azmoun is better. I was thinking which players were overall the best players in Asia in the last 20 years? Ofc Iranian and also other nations!
    Make a TOP10 list so we can see

    My parameters are at least 3 good club seasons in Europe. In no particular order. If we counted international matches I would throw Ali Daei in as well.
    Mehdi Mahdavikia
    Park Ji Sung
    Javad Nekounam
    Hideotoshi Nakata
    Song Heung-Min
    Shinji Kagawa
    Yuto Nagatomo
    Keisuke Honda
    Alireza Jahanbakhsh
    Gotuku Sakai

    Ali Al-Habsi (the Omani goalkeeper) has spent most of his career in the Premier League/Championship... definitely deserves to be in the conversation.
    We are currently witnessing a revolution in Iranian football. Team Melli has never been stronger than it is today, and we will only get better.

    There is no doubt that three names stand alone

    Ali Karimi, Nakata and Park Ji Sung
    Target: Russia 2018 WC knock out stage

    Its tough to say because there is a lot up for debate.
    Korea: Son and Ji Sung Park stand out near the top
    Japan: Nakamura, kagawa, honda, nakata, okazaki
    Iran: Mehdi Mahdavikia, Nekounam, Hashemian, Ali karimi, Ali daei (stricly for his international record). Azmoun to be seen. Iran has a knack for making very techinically gifted players, but not as much tactically. EDIT- this doesn't hold true for all, but I feel we would have more players in the top leagues if this were true.
    Oman: Ali Al habsi
    Australia: Arguably had the most skilled players in the early half of the 2000's. Viduka, Kewell, Bosnic, Cahill, Lazaridis, Jedinak
    Saudi Arabia: lmao

    Saudis had few good players but not necessarily best Asian players. They had Majed Abdullah, Sami Jaber, Saeed Al Owairan, and Muhamad Aduaya. All were from late 80s or 90s.

    Ali Daei is number 1! I don't think his international goal scoring record will ever be broken. I can't even imagine how many more he would have to his name had he not started his TM career so late.
