Tehran (ISNA) - FOX Sports Asia football editor Gabriel Tan picks the 10 best performers from Match Day 2 of the AFC Asian Cup 2019 group stage.

Sardar Azmoun (Iran)

Iran have made a storming start to the tournament with seven goals scored and none conceded in their opening two games, although they did meet some resistance against Vietnam on Saturday.

While Mehdi Taremi led the way in the opening 5-0 win over Yemen, it was Sardar Azmoun who stood tallest when the going got tough against a stubborn opposition defense.

He opened the scoring in the 38th minute when he was picked out at the far post by Saman Ghoddos’ excellent cross and made no mistake in heading home, but his second was a piece of individual brilliance as he effortlessly barged off two defenders after receiving possession outside the box.

The other best performers from Match Day 2 of the AFC Asian Cup 2019 group stage are as follows:

Chanathip Songkrasin (Thailand)

Khalfan Mubarak (United Arab Emirates)

Chris Ikonomidis (Australia)

Wu Lei (China PR)

Que Ngoc Hai (Vietnam)

Bashar Resan (Iraq)

Hattan Bahebri (Saudi Arabia)

Almoez Ali (Qatar)

Eldor Shomurodov (Uzbekistan)
