Fahed Attal (Arabic: فهد عتال‎; born 1 January 1985 in Qalqilya) is a Palestinian professional football player currently playing for Shabab Al-Khaleel of the West Bank Premier League.

Club career[edit]

Move to Jordanian Premier League[edit]

After grabbing the attention of scouts of clubs such as Al-Wahdat[1] with a dazzling performance at the 2006 AFC Challenge Cup Attal agreed a loan deal with Al-Jazeera of the Jordan League. After scoring 8 goals in his inaugural season, Attal was transferred on a permanent deal worth $210,000 USD.[2] In 2010, he signed a one-year $50,000 contract to join Al-Wahdat[3] Attal would play an important role in the team winning a historic quadruple but with the signing of Abdullah Deeb, Attal chose to search for a new club. He signed a one-year contract with Hebron-based Shabab Al-Khaleel of the West Bank Premier League.

International career[edit]

He is tied for all-time leading scorer in the history of the Palestine national football team with Ashraf Nu'man. He has14 goals in 37 games. Twelve of Attal's goals with the national team came in the 2006 calendar year earning him recognition from International Federation of Football History and Statistics which cited Attal as the World's 8th leading scorer of international goals on par with the likes of David Villa and Bastian Schweinsteiger [4] Attal was also included in the Asian Football Confederation shortlist of 10 players for the 2006 AFC Player of the Year Award [5] Palestine had an undefeated record when Attal found the back of the net. This was until he scored against the Philippines in the 2012 AFC Challenge Cup where they lost 4–3.
