Mohd Nizaruddin Yusof (born 10 November 1979) is a Malaysian footballer who operates as a striker. Currently Nizaruddin plays at Malaysia FAM League team MOF F.C., where he also acts as the team's assistant coach.[1] He is a member of the Malaysian national team and also has played for the Malaysian Pre-Olympic squad. He is well known for his finishing ability.

He became an instant hit with the local fans (Selangor FA & MPPJ FC) and also the envy of other clubs in the M-League. In November 2007, he signed for Perlis FA. He did not play when Perlis FA won the Malaysia Charity Shield. He then moved to PDRM FA in 2008 on a season long deal. After his contract with PDRM FA ended, he returned to Perlis FA in 2009. With Perlis, he won the Super League Golden Boot with 18 goals.

After a year with Perlis, Nizaruddin also played with PLUS FC and FELDA United FC before joining PKNS FC in April 2012, on a free transfer.[2] In April 2013, Nizaruddin joined ATM FA.[3]

Nizaruddin started representing Malaysia during 1999 Dubai Tour under Abdul Rahman Ibrahim. Since then he was selected to be part of the Malaysia squad, making him one of the more experienced players on the Malaysian national team. Although he did not produce many goals with the national team, he was adept at producing assists for his team mates to score.
