#3 Nawaf Al-Abed (Saudi Arabia)
Not many football lovers are much aware of the Saudi Arabian team and the only name that has been surfacing on the internet ever since their 28-man preliminary squad has been announced is that of Mohammad Al-Sahlawi. It is very obvious because Al-Sahlawi has scored 28 goals in 38 times he has donned the national colours.
However, teams must keep a close eye on Nawaf Al-Abed. The 28-year-old can play as an attacking midfielder, a winger, and a striker. The Al-Hilal player has scored 8 goals in 43 appearances for his national side.
He is expected to lead Saudi Arabia's midfield and though he might not be as big a goal threat as Al-Sahlawi, his spark in the midfield can open many goal-bound opportunities.
