West Bromwich Albion attacker Adil Nabi last night received a timely fillip by being voted best Young Player at the Asian Football Awards 2013.

The 19-year-old striker, who is currently sidelined after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament knee injury in pre-season, picked up his trophy during a ceremony at Wembley Stadium.

"I am quite overwhelmed, this is a great award to win," said Nabi.

"I've seen so many inspirational people here so I am proud to win an award which means so much to Asian football."
