Al-Hassan Al-Yami

Club: Al-Ittihad
Position: Forward

A late arrival on the international scene after years on the Al-Ittihad bench, Al-Yami is finally getting the recognition he deserves.

The striker, nicknamed 'The Bird', may not be in the starting line-up, but he will prove a dangerous if he is given a chance.

Extremely quick and skilful, he has a great eye for goal and is very versatile.

He can play either up-front or on the left-wing.
