Ahmad Alnameh possesses all the elements needed for a top-quality left full-back, with the 31-year-old cutting a physically strong figure. He broke onto the international scene with a flourish, scoring a spectacular free-kick against Qatar during the 2008 West Asian Football Federation Championship. Since then he has developed a reputation for testing opposing goalkeepers with long-distance efforts, while also provides options further up the field with the benefits of being deployed as a midfielder.

Alnameh started his career with Niroye Zamini, before joining Esteghlal Ahvaz ten years ago. It was with the Tehran side that he quickly made a name for himself through his eye-catching performances. His talents saw him become one of the country's most sought-after youngsters, before winning the Iranian League with Sepahan in 2009/10 season before moving to Naft Tehran two years ago.
