He scored two goals in Oman's journey in 2012 London Olympics qualification in the Third Round of London Olympics qualification, one in a 1-1 draw against Qatar although later Oman were awarded a 3-0 win as Qatar fielded an ill-eligible player and another in the return leg in a 2-2 draw against Qatar. Oman nearly made its first appearance in football at the Summer Olympics after earning an inter-confederation play-off match with Senegal for a chance qualify for the 2012 Olympics but a 0-2 loss eliminated them from contention.

In the 2013 Gulf Cup of Nations, Abdulaziz made two appearances but failed to score a single goal. Oman could score only one goal and this time it was from the spot by youngster Hussain Al-Hadhri in a 1-2 loss against Qatar. Oman failed to qualify for the semi-finals.

He made his first appearance for Oman on 11 October 2011 in the Third Round of FIFA World Cup qualification in a 0-3 loss against Australia. He scored his first goal for his country later in the Third Round in a 2-0 win over Thailand, which allowed them to progress to the Fourth Round of 2014 World Cup qualification for the first time after 2002 FIFA World Cup qualification. Oman entered the last game of group play with a chance to qualify for at least the playoff-round, but a 1-0 loss to Jordan eliminated them from contention.
