The son of former Ismaily star Mahmoud Gaber, Omar Gaber took his first steps in the game with Egyptian side Zamalek. From there, he sealed a move to Europe to play with Swiss giants Basel, before being loaned out to Los Angeles FC.

A right-back who can also operate in midfield, Gaber represented Egypt's U-20 side and Olympic team before making the step up to the seniors. He went on to contest 270 minutes during the qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup™, suggesting that his versatility will prove important to coach Hector Cuper at the finals.
