Goal Southeast Asia Player of the Week - Evan Dimas

Southeast Asia Player of the Week
Evan Dimas
AGE 18
POSITION Midfielder
PLAYS FOR Indonesia U19

Goal Indonesia Chief Editor, Agung Harsya: "Captain of the Indonesia U19 that won the AFF U19 Championship. Evan's inspirational performance brought Indonesia to the title. Even if he failed to find the net in the semi-final and final (failed in the penalty shoot-out too), he was arguably the best player of the tournament. His leadership and presence will lead to a bright career. Indonesia had been longing for a modern creative midfielder like him."

Congratulations to Evan Dimas, Goal's 3rd Southeast Asia Player of the Week winner!

Honourable Mentions

Adelino Trindade - Timor Leste U19

Goal Indonesia's Eric Noveanto: "The best Timorese player at the AFF U19 Championship. Normally plays as a wing-back in the senior team, but the coach of U19 team, Norio Tsukitate, pushed him up to play as an attacking midfielder. It worked well, looking suitable in the new position. Adelino also bagged five goals during the event including a hat-trick to secure third-place, the best finish in Timorese football history."

Scott McDonald - Millwall

Goal Australia Chief Editor Iain Strachan: "Scott McDonald scored the only goal as Millwall defeated local rivals Charlton 1-0 away from home in the Championship, picking up just their second win of the season. The 30-year-old striker found the back of the net with a deflected effort from outside the box. McDonald's first goal for the club he joined from Middlesbrough in the off-season will ease the pressure on under-fire manager Steve Lomas, who has now guided the team to two consecutive wins."

Indra Putra Mahayuddin - Kelantan FA

Goal Malaysia Deputy Editor Sadat Osman: "In the Red Warriors' last two group games of the 2013 Malaysia Cup, the defending champions needed nothing less then wins to secure their place in the quarterfinals. The veteran Indra Putra was chosen ahead of younger forwards by head coach Bojan Hodak. The 32-year-old stepped up to the plate and netted twice, one in each of the two games which saw his team claim convincing victories; 3-1 at Tereangganu and 4-0 at home against Pahang."

Hariss Harun - LionsXII

Goal Singapore's Ahmad Khan: "Over the past week, the stand-in LionsXII captain led his side to two must-win games against Sarawak FA and Kedah FA to qualify for the quarterfinals of the Malaysia Cup. Without a win in their first three group matches, the LionsXII were at risk of crashing out of the group stages. But led by Hariss, the Malaysia Super League Champions dragged themselves back into contention by securing key victories in their remaining three games. Hariss' leadership was encapsulated with his performance against Kedah, where he set the tone for the victory by scoring the crucial first goal in a 3-1 victory."

    KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) — When they moved from Georgia to the theme park playground of central Florida four years ago, Anthony and Candice Johnson found work at a barbecue restaurant and a 7-Eleven. Their combined salaries nevertheless fell short of what they needed to rent an apartment, so the couple and their two children have instead been hopping among cheap motel rooms along U.S. 192. …
