Mohammad Yasir

Mohammad Yasir reunited with the Gaurs in January this year, for the ongoing second half of the 2023-24 season.

Prior to joining FC Goa, his impactful contributions played a crucial role in Hyderabad FC’s recent success, including lifting the ISL Cup in the 2021-22 season.

Yasir initially caught the eye with his impressive performances for the youth teams of the now-defunct Pune FC. His talent soon earned him a call-up to Pune FC’s first team. This was followed by a stint with Pune City FC’s U18 side, after which FC Goa secured the Manipur-born footballer’s services in the players’ draft ahead of the ISL 2017-18 season.

The 25-year-old represented the Men in Orange once in the 2017-18 edition of the Super Cup, and also played for the Club’s Development Team in the Second Division League the same year, where he marked his debut with a goal against Madhya Bharat SC.

After a brief return to Pune City, Yasir then joined Hyderabad FC when the club owners shifted base. He emerged as a key player for the Nizams, making 91 appearances across all competitions, and scoring six goals along with providing 15 assists.

Beyond the domestic competitions, Mohammad Yasir has also made a mark on the international stage. Making his senior debut for the Indian national team in a 1-1 draw against Oman in 2021, the midfielder’s first notable moment for the Blue Tigers came during the SAFF Championship final later that year, when he contributed an assist in India’s 3-0 victory over Nepal.
