Few jokes can't be a bad thing. :D

Take a look on the sets from other members. You have Saudi players created by Stuart. I bet Al-Thunayan looked like this in Saudi league, but you should focus on global level. If he was this good, he would have been approached by some European club for sure.
I watched some footage of him few years ago, he was great controller of the ball and very explosive, with good shooting technique as I recall. I don't remember him having so impressive passing skills.

Some footage, but it would be best to watch some of his full games. Btw, wasn't he primarily a winger?
