Club career[edit]

Melbourne Victory[edit]

2012-13[edit]

Andrew Nabbout signed for Melbourne Victory's National Youth Team for the 2012-13 season on 1 October 2012. Having played only one NYL friendly; a 2 goal man of match performance against Altona Magic, Nabbout went on to make his senior debut for Melbourne Victory in an A-League match against Brisbane Roar on 13 October 2012 in a 5-0 defeat.[1]

On 10 November 2012, Nabbout came off the bench in the 66th minute away against bitter rivals Sydney FC, at the time being 2-0 down, and wrote his name into Victory folklore by scoring a superb 78th minute goal and then scored the winning goal in the 91st minute of the game to help Melbourne win the game 3-2. [2] On 17 November 2012, Nabbout earned his first ever start in a home game and scored his first goal in a home game against Central Coast Mariners, a game which ended 2-2. He has since signed a 3 year senior contract with the Victory.

On 7 December 2012, Nabbout made a his first full 90 minute appearance for Melbourne against Adelaide. For him it was a night to remember, scoring his fourth ever goal with the assistance of Marco Rojas. The match turned out to be one to forget for Melbourne, losing 2-4.

Nabbout made a total of 21 appearances for Melbourne, 2 of them in the final series, logging up a total time of 786 minutes.

2013-14[edit]

On 27 August 2013, it was confirmed that Lebanon national team coach Giuseppe Giannini had offered Nabbout a place in the national team to boost their attacking squad, being possible through his personal heritage. Nabbout declined the offer, in hopes that he could make the Australia national team, to make an appearance in Brazil for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.[3]

Nabbout was granted number 13 for Melbourne, from 26, following the release of defender Diogo Ferreira.
