Hassouneh Yousef Qasem Al-Sheikh (Arabic: حسونة يوسف قاسم الشيخ‎; born 26 January 1977) is a retired Jordanian footballer of Palestinian origin.

Retirement[edit]

Hassouneh retired internationally after playing the match between his country Jordan and Kuwait in the 2010 WAFF Championship, in which he entered as a substitute for his teammate Ahmad Abdel-Halim. That match resulted in a 2-2 draw between both teams.

A friendly match was played between his country Jordan and Uzbekistan at the Amman International Stadium on 13 August 2012 to mark his international retirement. Hassouneh gave the captain arm band to the goalkeeper Amer Shafi and his #8 jersey shirt to his younger teammate from Al-Faisaly Khalil Bani Attiah after playing the first few minutes of the match.

Hassouneh retired from playing football entirely in 2014. A friendly match was played between Hassouneh's team Al-Faisaly and Zamalek SC at the Amman International Stadium on 3 September 2017, which resulted in a 2-2 draw between both teams.
