Ahmad Abdel-Halim Abdel-Salam Al-Zugheir (born 14 September 1986) is a Jordanian footballer of Palestinian origin who plays for Sahab and the Jordan national football team.


Abdel-Halim, who normally plays as a left-winger but can also operate as a left back, has always been known as the "Asian Roberto Carlos" due to his thunderous left-foot and long range shots, thumping free-kicks and corner kicks, which are similar to that of the former Brazilian international Roberto Carlos.

Many fans of Al-Wahdat and Jordan refer to him as the following nicknames "Al-Andalib", "Haleem of Al-Wahdat", and "Al-Madfaaji".[citation needed]
