Abdullah Jaber "born 17 February 1993" is a Palestinian professional footballer who plays as a left back for El-Mokawloon SC of the Egyptian Premier League and the Palestine national football team.

Club career

Move to West Bank Premier League

Jaber made his professional debut in Israel's top tier with Ironi Ramat HaSharon in the 2011/12 season playing 23 minutes as a substitute- was part of a team that finished sixth (the club's best ever finish) in the league the following season.

After not being given his chance at Ramat HaSharon Abdullah made the decision to move to the Palestinian league signing with Hilal Al-Quds of the West Bank Premier League in 2013/14. Jaber proved to be an immediate hit, walking directly into the starting lineup. He won the Palestine Cup that season with Hilal at the end of his first season.

Jaber made his AFC Cup debut with Hilal Al-Quds in 2015 and helped keep a clean sheet in playoff qualifier vs eventual quarterfinalists El-Jeish of Syria (0-0, Hilal lost on penalties).

At the beginning of the 2015/16 season, Jaber elected to sign with Ahli Al-Khalil. After winning the Palestine Super Cup against Shabab Al-Dhahrieh and the Palestine Cup against Ittihad Shujaiyah, he helped qualify the team for the group stage, playing all 90 minutes 1-0 win vs. Khujand (Tajikistan).

Move to Egyptian Premier League

In August 2016, Abdallah Jaber agreed a three year deal with El-Mokawloon SC of the Egyptian Premier League.

International career

Abdullah Jaber earned his first cap, aged 21, in the 2014 AFC Challenge Cup opening game when Palestine faced Kyrgyzstan. Despite his inexperience he helped Palestine keep a clean sheet in a game they won 1-0.

He played 360 of the 450 minutes of the tournament helping Palestine lift the title without conceding a goal en route to the first ever AFC Asian Cup appearance.

His first international goal came in his 8th cap in a 2-0 friendly win vs. Pakistan.

At the 2015 AFC Asian Cup he was one of only two Palestine players to start and play every single minute of the tournament. His performances were widely regarded as one of the few highlights of an otherwise dour campaign that saw Palestine lose all three games.

Jaber remains a crucial team for Palestine having started and played every single minute of the side's 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification matches.
