Halgurd Mulla Mohammed Taher Zebari (Kurdish: هەلگورد مەلا محەمەد تاهر زێبارى , born 11 March 1988 in Mosul, Iraq) is an Iraqi football player of Kurdish ethnicity who plays as a Left Winger for Erbil SC in Iraq. His older brother Hawar Mulla Mohammed is also an Iraqi national team player and team mates at club level.

Info[edit]

Born in Mosul in March 1988, he started his playing career with local club Sulaymaniyah FC in 2004. With his brother an integral part of the Iraqi Olympic side and national senior team, Halkard thrived at club level, spending his first two years establishing his place as one of the nation's burgeoning stars.

He was first thrust into the international arena in the 2006 AFC Youth Championship, when he played in all four of Iraq's matches and was on target in the 2-2 draw against Saudi Arabia. After going on to feature in Iraq's failed qualifying campaign for the Olympic Football Tournament Beijing 2008, Mohammed made his senior debut in a friendly 1-1 against Jordan.

Inspired by Hawar's success, he has worked hard to emulate his brother's achievements. Now, with the FIFA Confederation Cup South Africa 2009 beckoning, the Iraqi fans will expect big things from the Mohammed brothers as they come together for the first time on the global stage.
