Wardun Yussof (born 14 September 1981) is a Bruneian footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Brunei DPMM.[1]

Wardun has been playing for DPMM since 2006, having returned from Wijaya FC after a brief spell in 2004.[2] Previously, he was a squad member of the Brunei team that participated in the M-League.[3]

Wardun was sent on loan to Majra FC in 2010 as Brunei (and in extension DPMM) served a two-year FIFA ban.[4] He became the team captain in that period and even converted a penalty in the semi-final of the 2011 Brunei League Cup.[5] He went on to win the final.[6]

International career[edit]

Wardun made his first start for Brunei in the 2002 World Cup qualifying round for Asia, in a 0-1 loss against Yemen. He was substituted before Yemen's goal was scored, earning him a clean sheet on his debut.[7] He then made 3 more appearances in 2001.

Wardun's next tournament was the 2008 Suzuki Cup qualifying when the whole Brunei team was represented by his club, DPMM FC.[8] He has then shared national team goalkeeping duties with his club understudy, Azman Ilham Noor.

He was the keeper when Brunei gained their first World Cup qualifying victory over Chinese Taipei in Kaohsiung on 12 March 2015.[9]
