That’s what we want YOU to decide from the list below – is it Safawi Rasid, Nguyen Quang Hai or perhaps one of the other cast of stars from either nation.

Vote now and make YOUR voice be heard!


Nguyen Quang Hai (Vietnam) - The creative hub of the Golden Stars whose passing and vision could unlock the visiting side.


Safawi Rasid (Malaysia) – The ‘X’ factor for Malaysia who is a huge threat whether from open play or via set-piece situations.


Shahrul Saad (Malaysia) – Composed at the back and a threat from corners and free kicks, the central defender will need to quell the Vietnam attack.


Que Ngoc Hai (Vietnam) – The Vietnamese captain has been a rock at the back throughout the tournament and will be charged with keeping Malaysia quiet.


Pham Duc Huy (Vietnam) – Scored a stunning goal in the first leg, but it’s more his hard-working efforts that could keep Vietnam composed and ticking over.


Zaquan Adha (Malaysia) – The captain of the Harimau Malaya and a key creative threat in the final third, Zaquan will need to be at his best to find a way past the hosts.
