Kuala Lumpur: The AFC Cup Bracket Challenge is back with two more fantastic goals as we ask you, the fans, to vote for your favourite goal from the Continental competition over the past 10 years. 

The next quarter-final pits ASEAN against South Asia with a delightful curling free-kick from Hanoi FC's Nguyen Quang Hai in 2019 taking on a lovely finish from East Bengal's Mehtab Hossain from 2013 as Vietnam and India go head to head.

Dead-ball specialist Nguyen Quang Hai was at his best against Turkmenistan's Altyn Asyr in the 2019 Inter-Zone semi-final first leg, scoring twice in a 3-2 victory. The Hanoi native has forged a reputation for netting exquisite free-kicks and here was another as he left the goalkeeper flat-footed after curling round the wall from 20 yards to tie the score at 1-1.

The 2013 AFC Cup marked East Bengal's finest campaign on the Continent as they became the second Indian side to reach the semi-finals, with performances such as the last 16 victory over Yangon United full of quality. The pick of the goals in a 5-1 victory came from Mehtab Hossain who, with his team two up, powerfully side-footed home from outside the area to all but wrap up proceedings.
