Hamdi Kasraoui (Arabic: حمدي القصراوي‎, born 18 January 1983 in Sousse) is a Tunisian football goalkeeper. He currently plays for CS Sfaxien in Tunisia.

Club career[edit]

Kasraoui played for Espérance Sportive de Tunis until 25 May 2009, when he signed with French club RC Lens, which at the time had just secured promotion back to the Ligue 1.[1] He spent the 2009-10 season as the club's second-choice goalkeeper, behind Vedran Runje, making his Ligue 1 debut on 17 April 2010 in a goalless draw at OGC Nice after Runje was ruled out with an injury. After his debut, Kasraoui went on to appear in all of the club's remaining five league matches of the season.

International career[edit]

Kasraoui has 16 caps for the Tunisian national team, and played at the 2005 Confederations Cup and the 2006 African Cup of Nations. However, he has been the second-choice goalkeeper both on club and international level. He was called up to the 2006 World Cup as a reserve for Ali Boumnijel. After Boumnijel retired from international football, Kasraoui became the first choice goalkeeper for Tunisia.
