The 17th edition of AFC Asian Cup witnessed a few records in the making and a few previous ones tumbling like a house of cards. This piece will brief you about the records broken and the players who made it big at the biggest stage in Asia.


  • Almoez Ali: The wunderkind hailing from Khartoum broke a 23-year-old record by scoring his 9th goal of the tournament. The record for the highest number of goals was previously held by Ali Daei from Iran who scored 8 goals in the 1996 Asian Cup.


  • Akram Afif: Almoez Ali’s striking partner made an intriguing record of his own as he went on to string up ten assists, the highest in this year’s tournament. He stood out undisputedly, as the one in the nearest vicinity was Chris Ikonomidis of Australia with four.


  • Saad Al Sheeb: The Qatari custodian was almost on the verge of penning a miraculous record of not conceding a single goal throughout the fray until Minamino’s momentary brilliance put a spanner in his dreams.

There were a total of 130 goals scored in 51 matches at an average of 2.55 goals per match.
