International career

Youth teams

U20 national team

Abdelkarim scored a goal against UAE U20 in the 10th International Friendship Youth Tournament.[5]

Olympic national team

In a friendly match against the Malaysia U-23 side on 17 June 2012, Abdelkarim sparked a mass melee between the two sides after a two-footed lunge on Mohd Azrif in the 43rd minute. He was duly shown a red card for his challenge. Afterwards, a Malaysian player, Nazmi Faiz, ran half the length of the pitch to confront him, and punched him. Being 5 inches shorter than Abdelkarim, Nazmi's punch turned into nothing more than a push on his chest.[6] Nazmi Faiz was shown a red card, whereas Qatar went on to lose 2–0.[7]

He scored a goal in Qatar's opening game against Maldives in the qualifying stage for the 2014 AFC U-22 Asian Cup.[8]

Senior national team

Abdelkarim made his debut for the senior national team on November 18, 2010 against Haiti.[9]

He was the youngest player to appear in the preliminary squad list for the 2011 Asian Cup at the age of 17 years and 123 days old. He scored Qatar's only goal against Malaysia in the 2015 AFC Asian Cup qualifiers to ensure Qatar a berth in the Asian Cup.[10] He also scored a goal in Qatar's 4–1 victory against Yemen in the qualifiers.
