Nawaf Al-Temyat

Club: Al-Hilal
Position: Midfielder

Al-Temyat is expected to be his country's star player at the World Cup and he has the incentive that a run of fine form could lead to a move to Europe.

The Al-Hilal playmaker has already attracted the interest of Serie A side Brescia who have been monitoring him throughout the season.

He was in the squad at the last World Cup but first burst into wider recognition for his performances and goals in the 2000 Asian Cup.

The former Asian Player of the Year is the most inventive player in Saudi Arabia's team and possesses the ability to turn the game in an instant.
