Rami Hamadeh (Arabic: رامي حمادة‎; born 24 March 1994) is a Palestinian footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for the Palestine national football team and Hilal Al-Quds in the West Bank Premier League.[1]

First Steps[edit]

At 17, Hamadeh was called into his first national team youth team. He played three out of four qualifiers for the 2012 AFC U-19 Championship, missing the final qualifier due to yellow card accumulation conceding four goals in three games and making a number of outstanding saves to keep the overmatched Palestinians in games against Syria, UAE, and Lebanon.

In 2012, he was called up to the U-22 side in their quest to qualify for the 2013 AFC U-22 Championship and served as the back-up to Ghanem Mahajneh.

In 2013, he was called up to face Jordan in an unofficial friendly and came on in the 81st minute in place of Ramzi Saleh.

The following year, he made waves in a friendly vs. Brazil, holding the opposition scoreless for 60 minutes and saving a penalty from Ademilson.[2]

Hamadeh was the starting goalkeeper at the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon and played a key role in Palestine winning its first ever games at the competition and advancing to the knockout round for the first time.

International career[edit]

In 2015, Hamadeh was the youngest member of Palestine's 2015 AFC Asian Cup squad but did not play. He became Palestine's starting goalkeeper during the 2016/17 season in which he conceded a mere 9 league goals in 21 games for Thaqafi Tulkarem. His first official national team cap came in a friendly vs. Yemen on 22 March 2017. He kept a clean sheet in his first three games- becoming the first Palestinian goalkeeper to do so. In his first 10 national team caps, Hamadeh has kept 6 clean sheets recording six victories, two draws, and two losses.

In 2018, he was called as one of three overage players to Palestine's 2018 Asian Games squad.
