Omid Nazari (Persian: امید نظری‎, born 29 April 1991 in Malmö, Sweden)[1] is a Swedish-Iranian footballer currently playing for Ängelholms FF in the Superettan as a centre midfielder and the Iranian national team. His brother, Amin, plays for Omid's previous club, Malmö FF, in the Allsvenskan.[2]


Club career

Malmö FF

Nazari made his Allsvenskan debut for Malmö FF in a match against IFK Norrköping on 3 July 2011.[3] It was announced on 15 December 2011 that Nazari would leave Malmö to join Superettan side Ängelholms FF.[4]

International career

Like his brother, Nazari was born in Sweden and his parents are from Iran and the Philippines. He was, therefore, eligible to play for Sweden, Iran or the Philippines.[5] On 12 May 2012 the Iranian side's manager, Carlos Queiroz, confirmed that Omid will join Team Melli in a camp in Turkey before the friendly match against Albania.[6] He had his first international appearance for Team Melli in Hungary against Tunisia in a friendly on 16 August 2012. His first national team goal came months later against Yemen on 15 December.[7]
