Saeed belongs among the generation of Iraqi players who emerged after 2003. As a teenager, he was recruited by Arbil FC, where he remained until 2006. After spending the next season with Baghdad-based Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya, he moved to Al-Ahly Tripoli in Libya in 2007. Saeed made a name for himself in his adopted country and was named Libya's ‘Best Foreign Player of the Year' in 2008.
In his international debut, a friendly with Jordan on 24 January 2008, Samer Saeed donned the number 8 jersey, a number Ahmad Abd Ali had seemingly made his own in Iraq's title-winning campaign at the 2007 AFC Asian Cup. The game ended 1-1, with Saeed playing impressively in his creative role. Prior to this senior bow, the diminutive midfielder had figured prominently with the Iraqi Olympic side that won silver at the 2006 Asian Games in Doha.
Standing just 165 cm tall, Saeed is one of the shortest players in the Iraqi team. But what he lacks in physical stature, the midfielder makes up for with pace, skill and creativity.
