05 Nov 2018, General

Bagor, 5 November 2018. Aspire Academy graduate and Qatar U-19 Qatar team striker, Abdulrasheed Umaru scooped the top scorer award at the 2018 AFC U-19 Championship in Indonesia which concluded on Sunday 4 November 2018. The 19-year-old scored seven goals during a campaign that saw Qatar reach semi-final and qualify for 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup,

The Aspire graduate found the net in four of his country’s five games at the tournament, including a hat-trick against Indonesia during Qatar’s remarkable 6-5 group stage victory.

“I really want to thank my teammates. Every goal I scored was because of their hard work, so I must give them a lot of credit. I still don’t really believe we lost in the semi-finals, but I am glad we got that far. I truly hope that everyone in Qatar is happy with us and our effort in this tournament. Ultimately, there were better teams than us, however we did everything we could. I am sure I will learn from this experience.”

Umaru’s teammate and fellow Aspire Academy graduate Hashim Ali, finished tied for second place with Jeon Se-jin of South Korea after both players scored five goals apiece.
