Khalid Ismaïl Mubarak (Arabic: خالد اسماعيل مبارك‎; born 7 July 1965) is a UAE football (soccer) player who played as a midfielder for the United Arab Emirates national football team and Al-Nasr Club in Dubai. He played in the 1990 FIFA World Cup and scored the first World Cup goal for his country against West Germany.

While it has been reported[citation needed] that he received a Rolls Royce from the UAE royal family for his performance at the 1990 World Cup, Ismail stated in a 2010 interview that he never received one.[1]

Like other footballers in the UAE team at the 1990 World Cup, Ismail was not a professional. He was working as a Deputy Chief Fire Officer for Dubai airports.[1] He is currently the COO at Emirates Response Services, Abu Dhabi.
