Khalid Askri (born 20 March 1981, Missour, Morocco) is a Moroccan football goalkeeper who plays for Raja Casablanca. He played for FAR Rabat for over 12 years.

Controversies[edit]

During the Moroccan Throne Cup semi-finals of 2009, Askri conceded a controversial goal by the opposition's forward, after the claimed "save" which lead the ball inside the net shortly afterwards.[1]

During another match, Askri controlled the ball in his box, but an opposition player took the ball out of his feet and scored, resulting in Askri to run off the pitch in embarrassment.
