† Appearances (Goals).
Badir scored 12 goals in 74 games for the Israel national football team between 1997 and 2007.
Badir was recognized early on as a valuable prospect, and played for the youth clubs Hapoel Kafr Qasim and Hapoel Petah Tikva, and later was given a spot on the second team's Premier League squad. Badir played for Petach Tikva for 7 consecutive seasons (1992–1997) and scored 19 goals.
Badir returned to Israel to Maccabi Haifa in 2000–01 at the beginning of the Avram Grant era. Grant, a longtime manager of clubs including Beitar Jerusalem and Maccabi Tel Aviv, moulded from young players like Badir and Yossi Benayoun one of the most dangerous clubs in the history of Israeli football. With Badir, Haifa would win four championships, failing only once, in 2002–03 when Maccabi Tel Aviv won the title.
Hapoel Tel Aviv
In 2005, while Haifa began a major campaign to revamp the squad with South American players such ad Gustavo Boccoli and Roberto Colautti, Badir signed with Hapoel Tel Aviv. He became a major part of their 2005–06 season when they were runners-up to his former team and State Cup winners. He was awarded the captaincy of the team and held it until his retirement.
On 26 August 2013, in Bloomfield Stadium, the club and its fans made a thankful standing ovation in honour of Badir's last appearance with Hapoel Tel Aviv before formally retiring.
