Muhammad 'Afi bin Aminuddin is a Bruneian international footballer who plays for Kota Ranger FC and the Brunei national team as a defender.[1]

Afi attended Brunei Sports School, the institution that also produced Brunei international footballers such as Azwan Ali Rahman and Hazwan Hamzah.[2] He was drafted into professional club DPMM FC playing in the Singapore league in 2010, but due to the ban imposed by FIFA on Brunei he was sent on loan to Indera SC along with five other players.[3]

Afi signed full terms with Indera not long after and has won two league championships with them.[4] After four seasons, he transferred to Kota Ranger FC.

International career[edit]

Afi played all six games in Brunei U21's maiden Hassanal Bolkiah Trophy victory in 2012.[5] He also turned out for the under-23s at the 2013 SEA Games.[6]

Afi made his international debut for Brunei on 26 September 2012 in a 0–5 loss against Indonesia.[7] He was ever-present in the 2012 AFF Suzuki Cup qualification but did not play at all for the 2014 edition. He was called up for the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Chinese Taipei in March 2015, but did not take the field.[8] A year later, he was selected for the 2016 AFF Suzuki Cup qualification but only appeared once as a substitute.[9]

After Kwon Oh-son was reinstated as the national team head coach, he re-utilized Afi who had played regularly for him for his first match back at the helm at the 2016 AFC Solidarity Cup held in Kuching, Malaysia.[10] Afi became the regular centre-back for fourth-placed Brunei in the tournament, appearing in four matches overall.
