Fathi Kameel Matar Marzouq (Arabic: فتحي كميل مطر مرزوق‎; born 23 May 1955) was a Kuwaiti football player in the late 1970s and early 1980s. He helped Kuwait qualify to the World Cup in 1982 by scoring a goal against New Zealand.[2] Fathi also helped Kuwait win the Asian Cup in 1980. He was joint top-scorer at the 1976 AFC Asian Cup with three goals.[3] He also played for Kuwait at the 1980 Summer Olympics.[4] It is said that Fathi would usually be on the bench (as a secret weapon) and that whenever he warms up to play, the crowd cheers him loudly.
