The poster boy of Malaysian football Safawi Rasid broke onto the scene in the 2017 edition and has since starred in the AFC Champions League and earned a move to Portugal. In 2018 against Tampines Rovers, the forward offered a glimpse of his potential, taking one touch before rocketing home an unstoppable effort from distance to open the scoring in a 2-1 group stage win.

A goal up against Indonesia's Arema in the 2014 last 16, Kitchee's start was about to get even better. Lam Ka Wai receives a short throw-in just outside the left corner of the area, turns in between two defenders and sends a powerful side-footed effort into the roof of the net with what was a goal out of nothing that allowed the Hong Kong team to ease to a comfortable victory.
