Syed Rumman Bin Wali Sabbir (Bengali: সাব্বির), is a former Bangladeshi footballer. He played for Mohammedan Sporting Club (MSC) in the Dhaka domestic league during the 1980s and 1990s. He made several appearances for the Bangladesh national football team, appearning in the 1990 FIFA World Cup qualifying rounds.
Success with Mohammedan
Sabbir joined Mohammedan in 1987. And he played a key role in MSC winning the double, the Federation Cup plus the Dhaka league title. In the Fed. cup final they defeated their great rival of the 1950s, Dhaka Wanderers 1-0. In the league the MSC side trailed Abahani for most of season, but following an impressive 3-2 victory for MSC in the final match of the regular season, the two teams were tied at the top. The 1st replay saw a 0-0 draw but Mohammedan clinched the title after a 2-0 victory in the 2nd replay.
For the national team
In the national team Sabbir formed a partnership with the Abahani striker SM Aslam; and the two combined to produce many important goals for the national side. For example, a cross by Sabbir helped Aslam score a headed goal against Iran, at Dhaka, in a FIFA World Cup qualifier in early 1989. Bangladesh lost 2-1. The missed penalty by Sabbir in the first half proved decisive. The team was more successful in the President's Cup final later that year. There, Aslam scored, heading a Sabbir corner to give Bangladesh the lead against a South Korea side; and although the visitors equalized, Bangladesh prevailed in the penalty shootout.

In the summer of 1991, Sabbir had a brief spell with Calcutta MSC in the Calcutta league.
