On 28 May 2018, Al-Taamari signed a three–year contract with Cypriot club APOEL.[5] he won the 2018–19 Cypriot First Division title and became known as one of the best players in Cyprus.

International career[edit]

Al-Taamari’s first international match was a friendly against Lebanon on 31 August 2016, which ended in a 1–1 draw. Al-Taamari was only 19 years old at the time. He went on to make six more international appearances during 2016.

Style of play[edit]

Being a left-footed right winger, Al-Taamari has a general tendency to cut inside and take on players with his fantastic dribbling ability. His ability to keep the ball close to his feet even in tight spaces is what makes him very dangerous when attacking defences. Al-Taamari's pace, trickery and general style of play have seen him compared to Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah.[7][8][3][9]
