Saddlers winger Maz Kouhyar has received an international call-up for Afghanistan’s fixture against Turkmenistan.
The 21-year-old, who flies out this weekend, will be looking to add to his two previous caps for Afghanistan – the first official call-up coming in a friendly against Oman, where he was on the losing side in August 2017.
Previous to his appearance against Oman, which Afghanistan lost 2-0, Kouhyar received a call-up to the senior squad for another friendly, this time against Malaysia, in October 2016.
The midfielder has made four appearances for the Saddlers this season, all of which have come in cup competitions, scoring one goal, a header against Middlesbrough Under-21s in the Chackatrade Trophy.
Kouhyar will be back in contention for the Saddlers’ game against Charlton on New Year’s Day.
