Left-back Homam Al Ameen has been rewarded for his fine performances in December and January by being crowned the Stars League best under-23 player over the two-month period.

Homam was part of an Al-Gharafa side who played seven matches during December and January, with the team managing to win three, draw two and lose two.

It’s another award for one of the most exciting prospects in Qatari football after Homam was named the QSL’s Young Player of the Year following his performances last season. 

Homam, who started his career with Belgian side Eupen but never made an appearance for the team, moved back to Qatar and Al-Gharafa when he was 19. Homam was able to break into the first team that year, and the flying left-back has now amassed 46 starts for his club and has become one of the first names on the team sheet. Homam has been able to chip in with three goals in his fledgling career so far. 

Regarded as one of the hottest prospects in Qatar football, Homam has been picked at every level for the Qatar national side, making five appearances for the Under 20s and four for the Under 23s. He has won 19 caps for the senior side and has scored two international goals. 

2022 seems set to be a huge year for Homam, who will be looking to help his Al-Gharafa side earn AFC Champions League qualification as well as helping Qatar to make football history in this year’s World Cup. If both his domestic and international sides are to be successful, Homam will need to play a significant part.
