Naser al-Sohi (born 24 August 1974) is a retired Kuwait international footballer who played as a midfielder.

Al-Sohi was the first Arab footballer to play in the Ukrainian Premier League. FC Dynamo Kyiv had sent a scout to the 1995 FIFA World Youth Championship finals in Qatar, and after the scout made a stop in Kuwait, the club took al-Sohi on trial. During his trial, al-Sohi made one Premier League appearance entering as a substitute against MFC Mykolaiv in June 1995. His Kuwaiti club offered to loan the player to Dynamo on a six-month loan for $500,000, but Dynamo ultimately declined.[1]

Al-Sohi made several appearances for the Kuwait national football team, including a 2002 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Bahrain on 3 February 2001.[2] He also played for Kuwait at the 2000 AFC Asian Cup finals in Lebanon.[3]
