January 3 – With just two days to go to the kick-off of the 17th edition of AFC Asian Cup in the UAE, figures show that Qatar hosts the highest number from among the 552 players registered in the Asian Cup 2019. 

According to #mundial11, some 45 players, about 8.2% of those registered with their respective national teams in the 2019 edition, are active in the first and second division leagues in Qatar.

Beside the 23 players of Qatar’s national team, 22 others from six countries represented in the Asian Cup 2019 are active in the 2022 World Cup host.

Asian Cup 2019 players, however, are dispersed amongst 57 countries worldwide, plying their trade in some 35 leagues including the English Premier league.
