Egyptian striker Ahmed Hassan Kouka has celebrated Sporting Braga qualifying to the Portuguese Cup final after beating Rio Ave in the semifinals late on Wednesday.

The 22-year-old attacker was part of Braga's squad during the goalless draw with Rio Ave in the second leg of the Portuguese Cup semifinals as they won the first leg 1-0 last February.

After the game Kouka wrote on his official Twitter account: "yes we are going to the final."

Kouka's Braga will face Porto, who defeated Gil Vicente 5-0 on aggregate in the final game of the Portuguese Cup.

The talented Egyptian striker Kouka has scored eleven goals with Braga so far this season, scoring eight in the league, one in the cup and two in the Europa League.

Braga is fourth in the Portuguese League teams' table with 44 points, eleven points behind third place and cup rivals Porto.
