what ever happened to Nawaf Al-Temyat?

I remember this guy won the Asian Player of the Year in 2001 or 2002 and he was the only Saudi player to impress me somewhat in the 2002 World Cup, but I haven't heard about him since. Is he still around?

He is now recovering from Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury but hopefully he will return to play at his standards even though it will be hard because this is his second or third (i am not sure) injury in the same knee.

Well I hope he does make the come back.. he was one of the few who had the talent AND brains to play well.. and as yary-Turk said, the ONLY bright spot from our 2002 WC.. I know he hasn't touched a ball for the NT since nearly the game against Ireland.. but with a year left.. I hope he can regain his form.. he played 10 minutes or so in a game against Al Ittihad last month.. I just hope he's not brought back too fast..

Best Regards,

Thanks for the info. I was wondering why I hadn't heard his name since WC2002. I had been expecting him to make a move to Europe on the strength of his performances.

Hopefully he will recover from his injury and get back to his best. How old is he anyway?
