Ashad Ali, (Adey, Adubarey) (born 14 September 1986) is a Maldivian footballer nicknamed "Adey" or "Adubarey", who plays as a forward for Maziya S&RC. He is a member of the Maldives national football team.[2] He was the Maldivian National Team Captain in the most recent bangabandhu gold cup 2016, held in Bangladesh, Dhaka. Where he led his team to the Semi Finals.

Penalty feinting incident[edit]

Adey gained global notability after simulating a fall prior to the run up of a penalty shootout in the third place match of the 2014 AFC Challenge Cup against Afghanistan, deceiving goalkeeper Mansur Faqiryar.[3] The match was won 7–8 to the Maldives.[4]

A similar move was pulled off by Thomas Müller during the 2014 FIFA World Cup (Germany v Algeria). In the 88th minute, Thomas Müller deceptively stumbled while lining up the kick, before getting up and running through the Algerian wall. A few days later, Müller admitted to a German TV reporter that the free kick was a designed play.[5]
