Ali Ahmed Mabkhout Mohsen Al Hajeri (Arabic: علي أحمد مبخوت محسن الهاجري; born 5 October 1990) is an Emirati professional association football player who plays for UAE Pro League club Al Jazira and the United Arab Emirates national team.

Coming through the youth system, Mabkhout made his debut for Al Jazira's first team in 2009.

Club career[edit]

Mabkhout made his AFC Champions League debut against Al Ittihad on 22 April 2009, after coming on as a substitute.[2] On 19 May 2009, he scored his first Asian Champions League goal in the 49th minute against Esteghlal in a 2–2 draw.[3]

Mabkhout formed a partnership with Ricardo Oliveira, his teammate from 2009 to 2014; this partnership was said to contribute towards the development of Mabkhout's talents in his formative years.[4]

International career[edit]

In the quarter-final of the 2015 AFC Asian Cup, Mabkhout scored the opening goal of a 1–1 draw with Japan at Stadium Australia in Sydney; he went on to convert his penalty kick as the UAE defeated the defending champions 5–4 in a penalty shootout.[5]

On 10 October 2019, Mabkhout scored a hat-trick against Indonesia in a 5–0 win to become UAE's all-time leading goalscorer.[6][note 1]
