QFA Award: Bassam Al Rawi the best Under-23 player


Al Duhail and Qatar national team defender Bassam Al Rawi is the best Under-23 player. He won the competition ahead of Al Ahli’s Abdulrahman Fahmy and Al Gharafa goalkeeper Yousef Hassan.

Bassam, who played an important role in Qatar’s success in the Asian Cup early this year, is a versatile defender. He is known for putting up consistent performances.

Bassam has great technical as well as physical abilities and is a key member in Qatar national team coach Felix Sanchez’s scheme of things.

Bassam, born on 16th December, 1997, has much experience playing at the top level and the stint with Al Duhail is surely doing his confidence a world of good.

Bassam was loaned out to Celta Vigo in 2015 and KAS Eupen in 2016 by Al Rayyan. He returned in 2017 to Al Rayyan and then moved to Al Duhail.
