Career[edit]

Club[edit]

Between the ages of 8 and 11, Ibrahim was a member of the academy of Queens Park Rangers.[6] Ibrahim advanced through the youth levels of Dartford beginning in 2001 before making his debut on 13 March 2008.[4] In 2010, he signed a 3-month loan contract with St. Andrews F.C. of Malta.[7] He has also had loan spells with Sittingbourne, Margate, Maidstone United, Leatherhead,[6] and Phoenix Sports.[8] He made a total of 8 appearances for Margate.[7] In 2014, he signed a short-term loan with Tonbridge Angels.[9] At the age of 24 in 2015, Ibrahim was named Dartford's first-choice goalkeeper after making 37 appearances for the club since his league debut in 2008.[8] Ibrahim scored his first goal for Dartford on 27 August 2016 on a free-kick from his own half against Hungerford Town[10] and his second against Chippenham Town on 13 October 2018 again from a free kick in his own half.[11]

In October 2018, Ibrahim departed Dartford to take up an academy goalkeeping coach role at Charlton Athletic.[12]

In March 2019, Ibrahim played one FA Vase game for Cray Valley PM.[13]

On 30 March 2019, Ibrahim joined Tonbridge Angels until the end of the 2018–19 season.[14] However, he returned to Cray Valley PM in May 2019 to sit on the bench in the 2019 FA Vase Final.[15]

International[edit]

Ibrahim was called up to the Gibraltar national football team for the first time in October 2016 for 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Estonia and Belgium.[16] He made his international debut in the match against Belgium, an eventual 0–6 defeat.[17][18] In the match, Ibrahim and Gibraltar gave up the fastest-ever goal in a World Cup qualifier, a 7th-second strike from Christian Benteke.[19]
