Mohammed Noor Hawsawi (Arabic: محمد نور هوساوي‎; born 26 February 1978), commonly known as Mohammed Noor (Arabic pronunciation: [moʊˈhæməd ˈnuːɾ]), also known by his shirt name Noor, is a footballer from Saudi Arabia. He currently plays for Saudi Professional League side Al Ittihad, and has been since 1993. In 2013, he was forced out of Al-Ittihad as he moved to Al-Nassr club for one season. Noor is considered to be one of the best players ever to play in the Asian Champions League. Locally, he is always quoted and praised for having more achievements and honours than that of some major teams in Saudi Arabia, such as Al-Ahli and even Al-Nassr.

International career[edit]

His first appearance with national football team was in 1999 FIFA Confederations Cup in Semi finals against Brazil. Noor played for Saudi Arabia in the 2002 World Cup, without any real success. He fared better in the 2005 FIFA Club World Championship in Japan for Al-Ittihad. While playing for the Saudi national team on 14 June 2006, Noor managed to deliver a powerful performance while also having come down with a bad case of the flu. During the second half of the Saudi Arabian game against Tunisia (their opening match of the 2006 FIFA World Cup), he provided Al-Qahtani with the winning assist which secured Saudi Arabia's first goal of the match, bringing the score from a 1–0 lead for Tunisia to a 1–1 tie.
