Egyptian striker Ahmed 'Kouka' Hassan scored his third goal in the Portuguese league this season on Sunday, netting the equaliser in Braga's 2-1 win over Tondela.

The international striker followed up after a header from teammate Raul Silva to slot home into an empty net before crashing against the post, one minute before the break.

Despite his injury, the 24-year-old carried on until he was substituted in the 77th minute, making way for Dyego Sousa.

Sunday's win helped Braga advance into fifth place in the Portuguese League with 12 points, nine behind leaders FC Porto.

Koka was included in Egypt's squad for the anticipated World Cup qualifier at home to Congo, which will take place on 8 October in Alexandria.
