A Snapshot of Qamar’s Stats with Spanish side International De Zamora FC

Tactical Analysis

Qamar’s speed is unquestionably one of his biggest strengths. Without the ball, his explosiveness is key to Igbajo United’s suffocating high press, and the aggression and dynamism of his movement in the final third helps create goalscoring chances for his team through turnovers high up the pitch.

When he has the ball, he is extremely capable in one-on-one situations and can glide past opponents with ease because he is so fast. Additionally, his acceleration is so good that he can reach full speed so quickly. He is also very agile, and able to change direction and move infield at speed before making passes to combine with teammates and provide a direct threat on goal even from outside the box.

Qamar uses the aforementioned qualities to forge brief windows in which to shoot at goal. He shifts his balance impressively quickly to create a sight of goal and, given he requires very little backlift to generate significant power in his shots, he usually gets a clean shot and defenders find it very difficult to block them.

Qamar’s goals return has improved significantly during the ongoing Nationwide League One (NLO) in Osogbo Center, scoring 4 goals in 4 games to help his team to the top of the table and setting them up for imminent promotion Play-offs.

He is at his most threatening running at defenders without fear. He has evolved from supporting striker into a forward who is consistently potent in central areas, often one making runs through the middle beyond their most advanced attacker.

Role for Igbajo United FC

Aside from goal scoring, Part of what makes Qamar so dangerous is that he is still very much a threat when he moves towards the touchline or into midfield – and supposedly away from danger. If he is tracked by a center-back he has the ability to skip past that opponent or make a clever pass into the space he has vacated for fellow danger men, Olawoye Idowu or Dauda Okini to run on to.

If the opposing defenders don’t follow him, Qamar runs at that defender at pace. He then either attempts to dribble past his opponent or plays intricate, lightning-quick one-two combinations, usually with Olawoye Idowu, to try and find a way through a deep block and in behind. Those combinations are a familiar sight at Osogbo Township Stadium, and have become a crucial aspect of what has made Igbajo United’s team so dangerous.


Qamar’s strengths lie in his ability to influence various aspects of the game, making him a valuable asset for Igbajo United Football Club.

Qamar’s work rate off the ball is exemplary, as he presses high up the pitch to force turnovers. His impressive average of 0.66 interceptions per 90 minutes places him in the 98th percentile, highlighting his defensive contribution and ability to disrupt opponents’ build-up play.

Ball Recovery Efficiency:
A relentless competitor, Qamar excels in winning back possession for his team, averaging 3.10 ball recoveries per 90 minutes. His tenacity and determination enable him to regain control of the ball and launch swift counter-attacks, transitioning seamlessly from defense to attack.
