Since playing every minute of Iraq's title-winning campaign at the 2007 AFC Asian Cup, Ali Rehema has established his status as one of the team's defensive stalwarts. He held on to his regular place during Iraq's failed 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa qualifying bid, starting seven of the team's eight games. After playing for Al Talaba, Al Quwa Al Jawiya and Arbil FC, Rehema earned his first international move when he was signed by Libyan giants Al-Ahly in 2007. After spending a season with the Tripoli-based club, he was attracted to Qatari outfits Al Wakra, where he continues to play.
Aside from shoring up the Iraqi defence, Rehema can also play the role as the defensive midfielder in their 4-5-1 formation, protecting the back four while launching counter-attacks from deep.
Rehema announced his retirement from international football, citing his reason to allow younger players the opportunity to represent the Iraqi national team.
