Tomer Hemed (Hebrew: תומר חמד‎‎; born 2 May 1987) is an Israeli professional footballer who plays as a striker for English Premier League club Brighton & Hove Albion and the Israel national team.

Club career[edit]

Maccabi Haifa[edit]

Hemed was called up to Maccabi Haifa's first-team in early 2006, after scoring regularly for the under-18 side. He appeared three times with the main squad, scoring once, before returning to the youth side. Hemed was again called up to Haifa's first team in 2007. He made his debut in the campaign on 3 March 2007, coming on as a substitute in a 1–2 home loss against Bnei Yehuda Tel Aviv.[2] Hemed scored his first professional goals on 26 May, netting his side's both goals in a 2–0 win at Maccabi Herzliya.[3] In 2007, he travelled with the Under-21 side to that year's Torneo di Viareggio; he scored once as Haifa was knocked-out in the group stage.

Hemed was subsequently loaned to Maccabi Herzliya,[4] Bnei Yehuda Tel Aviv[5] and Maccabi Ahi Nazareth[6] (the latter being managed by John Gregory).[citation needed] Nazareth, however, finished last as Hemed scored nine goals.[citation needed]

Hemed eventually returned to Maccabi Haifa in the 2010 summer, and appeared in 45 matches during the 2010–11 campaign, also scoring 18 goals as the club was crowned champions.[citation needed]

Mallorca[edit]

On 21 June 2011, Hemed signed a three-year deal with Spanish La Liga club RCD Mallorca.[7][8] He made his debut in the main category of the Spanish football on 28 August, starting and being booked in a 1–0 home success against RCD Espanyol.[9]

Hemed scored his first goals abroad on 1 October, scoring his side's both goals in a 2–2 draw at CA Osasuna.[10] He also netted twice in his Copa del Rey debut, a 6–1 home routing over Real Sociedad on 10 January of the following year.[11]

Hemed finished his first season abroad with nine goals, although four of them were from the penalty spot. In his second season he scored 11 goals, with the Balearic Islands outfit being relegated, however. In May 2013 Hemed suffered an Achilles tendon rupture,[12] which kept him sidelined for seven months.[13]

Almería[edit]

On 2 July 2014 Hemed returned to the Spanish top level, by agreeing to a two-year deal with UD Almería.[14] After struggling to score in his first matches, he netted his first goal with the Andalusians on 4 October, the last in a 2–2 home draw against Elche CF.

In January 2015, Hemed scored two braces against Málaga CF (2–1 away win) and Valencia CF (2–3 away loss), taking his tally up to six. He finished the campaign with eight goals, being the club's top goalscorer, but suffered team relegation.

Brighton & Hove Albion[edit]

On 24 June 2015 Hemed signed a three-year deal with English Premier League club Brighton & Hove Albion for an undisclosed fee. Hemed scored his first goal for the Albion in an away win at Fulham from the penalty spot to win the match 2–1 in the last moments of the game. Hemed scored just one goal between September 2015 and February 2016 which drew in criticism from the club's supporters but rediscovered his early season form to finish the season as the club's top scorer with 17 goals.[15]

International career[edit]

Hemed appeared with the under-17, under-18, under-19 and under-21's, featuring regularly with the youth squads. In January 2011, he was called up to the main squad for a behind closed doors friendly against FC Dynamo Kyiv. Hemed made his unofficial debut on the 26th, scoring in a 3–2 win.[16]

In May 2011, Hemed was called up to train with the national team for a friendly against Latvia in June.[17] On 4 June, he made his international debut, starting and assisting Yossi Benayoun in a 2–1 victory.[18]

Hemed scored his first international goal on 6 September, but in a 1–3 loss against Croatia.[19] He also scored a hat-trick in a 6–0 routing against Luxembourg on 12 October of the following year.[20]
