Bader Ahmed Al-Mutawa (Arabic: بدر المطوع‎; born 5 January 1985) is a Kuwaiti professional footballer who plays for Qadsia and the Kuwait national team, where he usually operates as a second striker. He wears the jersey number 17 for both club and country.

Club career[edit]

Al-Mutawa's performance for both club and national teams lead to his being awarded as the 2nd best Asian player in 2006. Though Al-Mutawa was handed the prize for 3rd place, which belonged to Saudi national Mohammad Al-Shalhoub, this was corrected later on and the Asian Football Committee assured that Al-Mutwa had won 2nd place.[1]

He was awarded the Kuwaiti league's top scorer for local players in the 2008–09 season with 10 goals.

On 23 July 2012 he began training with Nottingham Forest as their new owners, the Al-Hasawi family, arranged a one-month trial for the striker.[2] He impressed manager Sean O'Driscoll enough that the club were looking to sign him on a permanent basis but he was denied a work permit and the club wasn't able to sign him.[3]

International career[edit]

Al-Mutawa's first major competition on international level was the 2003 Arabian Gulf Cup, hosted by Kuwait. The home side finished sixth with only five points from six matches (only Yemen, the newcomer to the Gulf Cup finished the tournament with less points, sparing Kuwait the embarrassment of ending up at the bottom of the table of the gulf cup for the first time in their history). Al-Mutwa scored once in Kuwait's only victory of the tournament, a 4–0 win against Yemen.

Al-Mutawa played in the 17th Arabian Gulf Cup in 2004, scoring a goal in the 87th minute against Saudi Arabia in Kuwait's opening match. Al-Mutawa excelled in this tournament, forming a strike partnership with captain and star striker Bashar Abdullah. They managed to score five goals between them. This partnership was short lived as Bashar retired from international football shortly after the tournament and Kuwait was eliminated in the semi-finals by Qatar after topping Group B with two victories and one draw with Bahrain.

At the 18th Arabian Gulf Cup in 2007, Al-Mutawa scored goals against Yemen and in the final group match against the United Arab Emirates, but Kuwait exited the tournament for the first time in their history without winning a single game.

On 3 September 2015, Al-Mutawa scored his second senior hat-trick, in a 9–0 defeat of Myanmar in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier.[4]

With 162 caps as of his latest international match on 25 May 2018, Al-Mutawa is the most capped player for Kuwait and also the current active leader in international caps for male football players.
