Egypt striker Ahmed Hassan Kouka continued his superb goal-scoring form for Portuguese side Sporting Braga, netting in his side’s 1-1 Europa League home draw against Turkey’s Istanbul Buyuksehir on Thursday.

After scoring three times in the Portuguese league so far this season, Kouka notched his first Europa League goal of the campaign against the Turkish side in Braga.

Receiving the ball on the edge of the area, the 24-year-old exquisitely beat his marker with a good turn to go through on goal before giving his side the lead with a sliding left-footed strike on 26 minutes.

The goal is his third goal in three straight games, having scored against Tondela and Vitoria Guimarães in the last two weeks in the Portuguese league.

Kouka, who came through the youth ranks of Ahly, has been selected for Egypt’s crucial World Cup home qualifier against Congo on October 8.
