Syaffarizal Mursalin Agri
Another young talented Indonesian footballer is scouted abroad. He is Syaffarizal Mursalin Agri. He plays for Al-Khor junior in Qatar. He is 18 years old now. He started playing for Al-Khor Junior since he was 13 years old (2005) and scored 15 goals in his first season.
Qatar Football Association has planned to provide citizenship for this talented young player, but he refused it. Agri played football in Qatar ever since he was 4 years old, due to his father’s work in Qatar Gas Company. He is now under Aspire program in Qatar and trained by at least three coaches from European countries. The Indonesian Football Association has enlisted Agri as main player for Olympic Team during Qualifying Round in 2011. He will play with other talented youngsters like Bachdim, Kim Jeffrey Kurniawan, Kurnia Mega, and Okto Maniani. (*)
