Ali Al-Habsi was chosen a time ago as an ambassador for the 2022 World Cup, and stated at the time that he considered this choice a tribute to all Omanis and not to Ali Al-Habsi’s history as a goalkeeper only.
Ali Al Habsi is Ali bin Abdullah bin Hareb Al Habsi, born on December 30, 1981, from the state of Al-Mudhaibi, and was famous for the title of honest goalkeeper, as he contributed with our first football team to achieving impressive results at the Gulf, Arab and international levels. Al Habsi worked abroad for a number of clubs, including Bolton Wanderers, Lyn Wigan and West Bromwich.
بعد سنوات تشرفت فيها بتمثيل عدد من الأندية داخل الوطن وخارجه، أُعلن اليوم إنهاء مسيرتي كلاعب كرة قدم.
وبهذه اللحظة ارفع خالص شكري وعظيم امتناني لكلِّ مَن ساندني طوال مسيرتي ، مؤكداً استمراري في خدمة وطني من مواقع أخرى.
