Biography

One of the top goal-scorers in the Saudi Premier League, Hamzah Idris began his professional career with Ohud Medina in 1992, over a decade before the club was relegated to the Saudi First Division. Two years later he was selected to join the Saudi Arabian national team, making his first international appearance in two matches at the 1994 World Cup. In 1995 he was picked up by Al-Ittihad in the city of Jeddah and remained with them until his 2007 retirement. Internationally he played in all three of Saudi Arabia’s losing matches at the 1996 Summer Olympics and participated in one match at both the 1999 FIFA Confederations Cup and the 2005 FIFA Club World Cup. His biggest claim to fame came in 2000, when he broke the Saudi League goal record with a total of 33, a feat that also placed him third among the top scorers of the world that year. Throughout his career he received only one (controversial) red card in league play and one yellow internationally. As of 2010, he is an assistant coach with Al-Ittihad.
