Hosni Abd-Rabou scored twice as Al-Nasr cruised to a 4-2 victory over Al-Taawon in the Saudi Crown Prince Cup round of 16.

The Egypt midfielder gave his side a 2-1 lead on 33 minutes when he beat the offside trap to latch onto a chipped pass and fire a left-footed half-volley past Al-Taawon keeper.

He added the third three minutes later when he arrowed a free-kick into the corner of the net from the edge of the area.

Al-Nasr have set up a quarter-final clash against Jeddah giants Al Ahli.

Abd-Rabou joined Al-Nasr from Egyptian coastal club Ismaily on a season-long loan last summer for his second stint in Saudi football, having played for Ittihad last term.
