Mamunul scored a stunning goal in Abahani’s fifth AFC Cup group round match against Nepal champion Manang Marshyangdi Club Wednesday where the Bangladesh giant won 5-0

It’s not often that a Bangladeshi player gets rewarded for scoring a beautiful goal. 

Mamunul Islam broke the jinx as the Abahani Limited midfielder was adjudged the winner of this week’s Goal of the Week, presented by Allianz for the 2019 AFC Cup, after a public vote on the AFC’s official website.

Mamunul scored a stunning goal in Abahani’s fifth AFC Cup group round match against Nepal champion Manang Marshyangdi Club Wednesday where the Bangladesh giant won 5-0.

Following a backpass from Nigerian striker Sunday Chizoba, Mamunul unleashed a powerful left-footer from 20 yards out that hit the net through the right edge. 

It was the fifth and last goal of the game.

Mamunul’s goal earned 7,997 votes out of 15,520 and beat Syrian club Al-Jaish forward Mohammed Al Wakid’s goal (7,190 votes) from halfway against Al Jazeera. Indian League champion Minerva Punjab’s Samuel Lalmuanpuia and Tajik league runners-up FC Khujand’s Dilshod Vasiev’s goals.

Scoring such a long ranger however, was not the first time for Mamunul, both in the domestic league and AFC Cup this season. 

The 30-year-old’s 88th-minute screamer earned Abahani a crucial 3-2 win over ISL champion Chennaiyin FC in the same competition last month.

“I really worked hard in the last few months to get back my old form. It’s good to score two goals in international competition and the better feeling is that we also won the games. It’s an honor to win Goal of the Week award. I want to keep the form for the rest of the season,” said Mamunul to Dhaka Tribune.
