Egypt wide man Ahmed Elmohamady has bagged a brace in Hull City's 4-0 friendly win over UEA side Al-Ain, as the Tigers concluded their pre-season tour in Austria with the resounding victory.

Ex-Tottenham center-half Michael Dawson opened the scoring for Steve Bruce's men in the first half, before Elmohamady made it two just 90 seconds after the break when he cushioned a volley into an open goal.

The Egyptian then completed his personal brace just two minutes before the hour-mark when he headed in Nikica Jelavic's cross at the far post.

But there were still further goals to come, and Calaum Jahraldo-Martin made it four with a fine solo effort.

Hull, who play Sheffield United in another friendly match on Sunday, will be competing in the English Championship after being demoted following a 17th-place finish last season.
