Thailand have emerged the champions of Southeast Asia once again by defeating Vietnam 3-2 on aggregate in a tightly-contested final as the AFF Mitsubishi Electric Cup 2022 came to a nail-biting conclusion earlier this week. 

We now look back on the memorable tournament and ask you, the fans, to pick your All-Star XI by voting for who you think was the best performer in each position. This time around, we are looking at the players who led the attack for their sides and we've selected 10 forwards who stood from the rest.

Please review our nominees and then tell us who you think deserves to be named in the AFF Mitsubishi Electric Cup 2022 All-Star XI by clicking on the link at the bottom of the article.

Teerasil Dangda (Thailand)

Teerasil Dangda's love affair with the AFF Championship continued in 2022 as his six goals from six games took his record overall goals tally in the tournament to 25 goals -- now eight more than Singapore legend Noh Alam Shah at second. The seasoned striker was also named the tournament's top scorer alongside Nguyen Tien Linh -- his fifth AFF Championship Golden Boot since 2008. The 34-year-old also fired a tournament high 21 shots, created 13 chances, played 11 key passes and assisted twice -- all despite missing both legs of the final due to an injury. 

Nguyen Tien Linh (Vietnam)

After being a squad player in 2018 and 2020, Nguyen Tien Linh underlined his reputation as Vietnam's leading hitman with a six-goal haul at the AFF Mitsubishi Electric Cup 2022 that saw him share the Golden Boot with Teerasil Dangda. The 25-year-old took his impressive goalscoring run from the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers to the ASEAN showpiece. The Binh Duong forward scored against Laos, Malaysia and Myanmar in the group stage before firing a brace against Indonesia in the semi-final second leg to sent Vietnam through to the final.

Faisal Halim (Malaysia)

A weakened Malaysia's run into the semi-finals of the AFF Mitsubishi Electric Cup was largely thanks to Faisal Halim's goalscoring spree. Faisal began the tournament with a bang scoring Malaysia's winner against Myanmar in the group stage opener before an impressive double against Laos. He then scored on his 25th birthday in Malaysia's 1-0 win over Thailand in the semi-final first leg that had their fans dreaming of a place in the final. Faisal, a sly fox in the box, also drew seven fouls and made three key passes in his six appearances. 

Dendy Sulistyawan (Indonesia)

Indonesia are a side that have an abundance of exciting talent in attacking positions, but it is Dendy Sulistyawan who Shin Tae-yong chose to become the focal point of this exciting side. 26-year-old Dendy, who had to wait until September of last year for an international call-up, repaid the faith shown in him by scoring twice in the group stage -- the first coming in a 7-0 win over Brunei Darussalam and then in their 2-1 win over the Philippines. The Bhayangkara FC forward also drew eight fouls and supplied four key passes during the tournament. 

Lim Pisoth (Cambodia)

21-year-old Lim Pisoth is a key cog in an up-and-coming Cambodia side and it was a memorable AFF Mitsubishi Electric Cup 2022 for the youngster as he scored his first international goals during the campaign. It was a late double against Brunei Darussalam in Phnom Penh that got him off the mark in international football. The Phnom Penh Crown forward also made three key passes during the tournament as the Angkor Warriors just fell short of a place in the semi-finals, but all signs are that good things are on the offing for the nation. 

Kenshiro Daniels (Philippines)

The Philippines are a team in transition and the glimpses of what that future holds were visible during the AFF Mitsubishi Electric Cup 2022. And one player who could feature heavily in the new-look Azkals squad is Kenshiro Daniels. The 28-year-old scored his first international goals in more than four years with a double against Cambodia before adding a third in a 5-1 win over Brunei Darussalam. Daniels also made three key passes from his four appearances in the tournament. 

Shawal Anuar (Singapore)

Four-time champions Singapore struggled against a resilient Myanmar side in their group stage opener at Jalan Besar Stadium. With both sides tied at 2-2 and time running out for the hosts, it was Shawal Anuar who stepped up and scored the all-important winner for the Lions in the 74th minute. The 31-year-old forward was once again on target in their second outing scoring in the second-half stoppage time to seal a 2-0 win for Takayuki Nishigaya's side against Laos. 

Maung Maung Lwin (Myanmar)

Maung Maung Lwin gave Antoine Hey's Myanmar a dream start against hosts Singapore in their second outing in the AFF Mitsubishi Electric Cup 2022 scoring the opener. The attacker was once again on target later in the game to make it 2-2 before Singapore struck back to steal the win. The 27-year-old forward, who plies his trade in Thailand with Lamphun Warriors, was also on target in their next outing with a last-gasp goal as Myanmar stole a point from Laos to take his tally to three goals from four matches. 

Safawi Rasid (Malaysia)

25-year-old Safawi Rasid did not get his name on the scoresheet during the AFF Mitsubishi Electric Cup 2022, but he was nonetheless very influential for Malaysia as he ended the campaign with four assists in bag -- a figure only bettered by tournament's Most Valuable Player Theerathon Bunmathan. Safawi, who now heads to Thai League 1 to represent Ratchaburi FC, also won 15 fouls in four starts and played six key passes as Malaysia exited the competition in the semi-finals at the hands of eventual winners Thailand. 

Sieng Chanthea (Cambodia)

One of the biggest talents to emerge from the country, Cambodia's Sieng Chanthea has had a reputation that precedes him. Still just 20 years of age, Chanthea scored one of the two goals reigning champions Thailand conceded in the group stages. He also completed 96 passes at a success rate of 80 percent and played six key passes in his four appearances during the AFF Mitsubishi Electric Cup 2022. The Boeung Ket forward is sure to light up many more AFF Championships in the years to come.
