Siraj Ahmed Yusuf Saleh Al-Tall (born 8 January 1982 in the United Arab Emirates) is a retired Jordanian footballer who last played for Pelita Jaya.


Al-Tall joined the Jordanian League side Al-Faisaly as a teenager in 1999 and has been playing for them until 2008, when he joined Sydney Olympic, in the Australian NSW Premier League.[2] Initially he was not given clearance by the Jordan FA to play for his new club, as they claimed that he had an outstanding contract with his previous club. Siraj maintained that no such contract existed. Sydney Olympic went to FIFA to resolve the situation, and FIFA ruled in favour of Sydney Olympic on 1 May 2008. In 2009, he joined Pelita Jaya in the top flight of Indonesian football, Indonesian Super League.[3]

International career[edit]

He was a member of the Jordan national football team. The forward earned ten caps for Jordan and scored four goals. The last time he featured for his country was against Kyrgyzstan in October 2007.[4]
