Khalid Askri (born 20 March 1981) is a Moroccan football goalkeeper who plays for FAR Rabat.

Askri became world famous for his two goalkeeping blunders in 2010, which occurred within weeks of each other. The first occurred in a penalty shootout during a match against Maghreb Fez. Askri initially stopped a penalty kick, but while celebrating the initial stop, the back-spinning ball rolled into the net. The footage became a viral video on the internet.

The second gaffe occurred during a match against KAC Kenitra, when Askri attempted to dribble away from an attacking forward, who easily stole the ball from Askri and scored. After this blunder, Askri removed his jersey and gloves and ran off the field, dodging his teammates' attempts to console him.
