Badra was born in Kairouan. After beginnings with his hometown's squad, Jeunesse Sportive Kairouanaise, he joined Espérance de Tunis in 1996. He made a name for himself in the country as a powerful and uncompromising centre-back, who could also score from set pieces. He earned a call up to the Tunisian national football team for the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta at the age of 23 and became a virtual ever-present after that. His good form for the national side was mirrored in Tunisian competitions, where he has led Espérance to continuous league triumphs.
His club football career has been varied – solid and loyal service interspersed by short spells abroad. He also played for Genoa C.F.C. in Seria B, Al-Ahli Jeddah in Saudi Premier League, and Denizlispor in the Turkish league. He plans to see out his career at Espérance.
Badra featured in both 1998 World Cup and 2002 World Cup, as well as the three African Nations Cups in that time. His finest hour came in the 2004 African Nations Cup when Tunisia hosted the games. He scored two penalties in the semi final against Nigeria (one in normal time and another in the shootout), but also picked up a yellow card meaning he was suspended for the final. He decided to retire from international football in 2006.
