Egypt striker Ahmed Hassan, better known as Kouka, netted his second goal in the Greek Super League to lead Olympiacos to a 1-0 win over Aris Thessaloniki on Sunday.

Kouka, who played the full 90 minutes, scored what proved to be the winner seven minutes past the hour mark.

He marked his return from injury, which kept him out of the previous two league games, with a fine display to take his tally to two goals in six league appearances so far this season.

The 25-year-old opened his Olympiacos account in their 1-0 win over Panionios in September.

Kouka joined Olympiacos from Portugal's Sporting Braga in the close season.

He was not named in Egypt's squad for the upcoming African Nations Cup qualifier against Tunisia on 16 November despite recovering from injury.
