Farizal Basri is a midfielder who currently plays for Woodlands Wellington FC in the S-League, joining them in early 2012 in time for the 2012 S.League.[1]

His appearances for three S-League clubs, Sengkang Punggol, Home United and Woodlands Wellington FC between 2009 to 2012 have earned him the "journeyman" tag amongst journalists and pundits alike. He has also played for Tampines Rovers FC and the Young Lions during his career.

Farizal initially started off as a defender for the Young Lions and his solid performances at the back earned him a call-up to the national squad in 2004.[2]

Now, he usually plays behind the front two, offering support from midfield.[3] He is considered by many to be a natural playmaker.
