#SFGTop100 Asia 2015

Asia

Undoubtedly, 2015 was a great year for us on the Asian side of the site, through our coverage of the Asian Cup, our extensive analysis of the rise of Qatar and Uzbekistan, our look at some of Asia’s Rising Stars, while covering other high profile tournaments such as the East Asian Cup and the AFC Champions League. What stuck out was the wide variety of high performers across the domestic and international scene that we wanted to highlight to a larger audience. We hope that compiling a countdown of Asia’s Top 100 performers over the calendar year will introduce you to a number of new faces that you might not necessarily be aware of, but also create some debate nearer the top end over some of the continent’s most talented players.
