He also plays for Qatar's Olympic and U-20 teams. His family is descended from the sheikhdom ruled by the Yazidi tribe in Lower Yafa, a historic state in what was then known as the British Aden Protectorate (present-day Yemen). He played football for a team in Yemen in his youth years, and was later a student at the acclaimed Aspire Academy in Qatar. He gained Qatari citizenship in July 2011. His family still lives in Yafa.
Yazidi previously played for Al Muaither's youth teams. He later joined Aspire Academy, before becoming a part of Al Sadd's youth team, where he won the top scorer title for the U-19 league with 14 goals in 2011. He graduated from Aspire Academy in 2010.
He made his first-team debut for Al Sadd in 2010.
Yazidi made his debut for the national youth team on August, 2011, against Japan. He featured in the 2012 AFC U-19 Championship qualification campaign for the Qatar under–20 team. He scored 3 goals in the 5 matches Qatar played, including a brace against Bahrain. Qatar finished at the top of their group, ending the qualification with a loss against Tajikistan.
Yazidi also played one game in the 10th International Friendship Youth Tournament, which Qatar came runners-up in, scoring a goal.
Yazidi made his U–23 debut in the 2012 Summer Olympic Qualifiers. His first appearance was on 5 February 2012 against Oman, in a dramatic match which ended 2–2. Shortly after, he featured in a match against Saudi Arabia, which Qatar won 2–1, thanks to an assist Yazidi provided to Hassan Al Haidos two minutes before half-time.
