Nabil was a striker who has graduated from the Diamonds youth scheme into the first team squad. Originating from Milton Keynes, he joined the Diamonds Centre of Excellence at the start of his Under 14 year. He made his senior debut aged 16 in the NFA Hillier Senior Cup game against Rothwell Corinthians in November 2008. As well as achieving an impressive scoring record for Diamonds Youth team in the early part of the 2009/2010 season, Nabil was loaned to Newport Pagnell Town in order to gain experience of men’s football. He also made a further first team appearance in the Hillier Senior Cup that season. In mid-November 2009, he went on work experience to Banbury United. His performances during the season were rewarded in April 2010 when he was awarded a professional contract for the following season.

Early in the 2010/2011 season he went on loan to Southern League Premier side Banbury United and scored four goals in his first five games for the Puritans. In late November 2010, he stepped up with a loan to Conference North side Nuneaton Town initially until Boxing Day, although the loan period was then extended for a further month. In his two spells at Banbury, Nabil had scored 11 goals in 53 appearances. On his return from Nuneaton in February 2011, he made his first appearance in a League game for Diamonds when appearing as a substitute in the game against Gateshead at Nene Park on 12 February 2011. He scored his debut goal at Conference level on 9 April 2011 when he netted against Wrexham at Nene Park. He went on to score three more goals in the next two games, and picked up the “Man Of The Match” award in Diamonds final home game against Kidderminster Harriers. He was released from his contract in May 2011, and joined Tamworth on 4 July 2011. After just two goals in 27 appearances for the Lambs, he went on an end of season loan deal to Southern League Premier side Hemel Hempstead Town on 2 March 2012. Nabil was released at the end of the season, and joined Conference North newcomers Oxford City on 1 August 2012, but was released on 26 November 2012. He joined Southern League Premier side Kettering Town the following day for their fixture at Bideford AFC, but left after just the single game. He rejoined Southern League Premier club Banbury United on 11 December 2012 for his third spell at the club, but left at the end of the season. Nabil joined Southern League Premier side Corby Town on 20 July 2013, but left on 17 November 2013 due to lack of first team opportunities. On 22 November 2013, Nabil joined NPL Premier side Stamford. After spells back at Banbury United and Stamford he moved to Daventry Town in November 2015 and after a spell there he joined AFC Rushden & Diamonds in January 2016.

His debut for the club was delayed due to injury and he was only able to make a number of cameo appearances for the club in the 2015-16 season. During the 2016/17 season he was the club’s top scorer with 26 goals, picking up three player of the month awards. He left the club at the start of November 2017 to join Alfreton Town. Since making his debut in April 2014, Nabil played 73 games for the club, including 57 league games, scoring 40 goals. From Alfreton he went on loan to St Neots Town, before signing for Stratford Town ahead of the 2018/19 season. He returned to St Neots Town  a month into the new season. After another spell with AFC Rushden & Diamonds he joined St Ives Town for the 2020/21 season.
