Fahrudin Mustafić (born 17 April 1981) is a Singapore footballer who plays as a centre-back for S-League side, Tampines Rovers FC. He obtained his Singapore citizenship after two years and plays for the Singapore national football team.

Football career[edit]

Born in Novi Pazar, SR Serbia, SFR Yugoslavia, Fahrudin started playing in the youth team of FK Novi Pazar when he was 10, and played there until his departure to Singapore.[1] He played in the youth sections until 2000, when he joined the senior squad and played two seasons with Novi Pazar in the Second League of FR Yugoslavia.[2]

In January 2002 he was brought to Singapore with the help of fellow Serbian and Tampines Rovers player, Sead Muratović.[1] Impressive displays in his first two seasons earned him citizenship.

Fahrudin or Farra as he is affectionately called by fans of Tampines Rovers and the national team, made his debut for the national team in January 2006, in the friendly against Denmark.

Known as less a fanciful and more a tenacious player, he became a pivotal member of the national set-up with his crisp passing and tight marking ability. Has a knack of netting penalties and is the first choice penalty taker for both club and country.

Fahrudin was also part of the national side that took part in the 2007 AFF Championship, where he played a key role in helping Singapore retain the championship. He scored his first goal for Singapore through a controversial penalty kick against Thailand on 31 January 2007 at the National Stadium during the 2007 AFF Championship Final.

In September 2009 Fahrudin was bought by Indonesia Super League club Persija Jakarta. After he was released he joined Persela Lamongan.[3] He then returned to his former club Tampines Rovers in June 2011.
