Karim Koceila Yanis Ziani (born 17 August 1982 in Sèvres, Hauts-de-Seine, France) is an Algerian professional footballer. He currently plays as a creative midfielder for the Qatari club Al-Jaish on loan from German Bundesliga club VfL Wolfsburg, and for the Algerian national team. He has the talent to play in different positions, although he is best known for being a midfielder.

Ziani alongside Antar Yahia and Faouzi Chaouchi is considered to be a national hero by many Algerians as it was his cross that led to the goal that put them into their first World Cup competition since 1986 at the expense of bitter rivals Egypt.
