Club career
Shariff has previously played for S.League clubs Sembawang Rangers FC, Young Lions and Tampines Rovers FC.
He was brought into the Tampines Rovers squad from the Young Lions after a stint with Sembawang Rangers FC, largely as a back-up player for the 2007/2008 highlighting season. However, due to teammate Sead Muratovic's failure to pass the annual fitness test, he became a major part of the first team's fixture in the S-League. He then join Home United FC in 2010.
He is also known as a hot-tempered player, and was once handed out an eight-month ban by the Football Association of Singapore for throwing a punch at a Geylang United FC player, Peter Bennett in a S-League match when he was a Sembawang Rangers FC player.
Shariff spent half a season in the NFL Division 2 side Admiralty FC during the first half of 2012, and it was announced that he would rejoin S.League side Tampines Rovers for the second half of their 2012 season. However, he failed to break into the squad and was released at the end of the season.
On 2 February 2013, Shariff was unveiled as a Woodlands Wellington player during the team's pre-season fanfare.
He made his debut for the Rams on 5 March 2013 in an away game against his former club, Home United FC. Shariff put in an outstanding performance against the Protectors, his clearance off the line off Masato Fukui's shot being heralded as the turning point of the game by Woodlands coach, Salim Moin, during the post-match conference.
Shariff rejoined Tampines for the 2014 season, but not retained for the 2015 season and played for another NFL side Singapore Recreation Club that year. He then were signed by Geylang International for the 2016 season, but were released at the end of the season.
International career
He first earned an international call-up for the games against North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Australia and the UAE. However, he was unable to break into the squad back then under Radojko Avramović.
In 2013, Shariff was called up by new national coach Bernd Stange due to his impressive performances for Woodlands Wellington in the S.League. He made his international debut on 4 June 2013, coming on as a substitute against Myanmar in a friendly match in Yangon.
Death
Sharif's death was announced on SG Premier League's twitter account at 2:48 pm on February 10th 2020. The cause of death is currently unknown.
