Muhammad Faiz bin Mohd Nasir (born 21 July 1992) is a Malaysian professional footballer who is now a back player for Terengganu after one year playing for Selangor in the Malaysian Super League as an attacking midfielder or a winger and the Malaysia national team. He is dubbed as Terengganu's Lionel Messi due to his small physical size and height, in addition to his powerful skills on pitch, vision, ability, speed and endurance.[2]

Early life[edit]

Faiz was born and raised in Pasir Mas, Kelantan. He is the sixth of eleven siblings. He received his primary and secondary education in Kelantan, Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Tiang Chandi.

Club career[edit]

Faiz began his football career playing for the Kelantan youth team in 2013. In 2014, Faiz signed with FAM League club PBAPP. He played for two seasons with PBAPP before decided to leave the club for Felcra and signed one-year contract with the team.

International[edit]

In March 2019, Faiz received his first call-up to the Malaysia national football team. He made his international debut when he came on a first eleven in a 2–1 2019 Airmarine Cup win with Afghanistan. In that match, a stunning strike out from the box led to his first goal of the tournament and national team.

In June 2019, Faiz was named in the 23-man for the FIFA World Cup Qualifier against Timor-Leste and he scored a goal which Malaysia won 7-1 trashing Timor Leste.[3]
