The official website of the Asian Football Confederation has published articles about the AFC Asian Cup 2023 qualifiers. They shine the spotlight on some of the players to keep an eye on before the continental competition. The articles highlight a list of 12 best players from the teams that will play the matches in Calcutta, Kuala Lumpur and Bishkek. The list includes Altymyrat Annadurdyev, a forward of the football team of Turkmenistan. One of the paragraphs reads: ‘Altymyrat Annadurdyev has been Turkmenistan’s main source of goals in recent years, with the Altyn Asyr forward on the score sheet in wins over Lebanon and Sri Lanka in the previous round and likely to be his country’s biggest threat once more.’ The national football team of Turkmenistan will meet the teams of Bahrain, Malaysia and Bangladesh in Group E of the AFC Asian Cup.
