Egypt and Al-Nasr midfielder Hosni Abd-Rabou has suffered a knee injury that will sideline him for three weeks, the Saudi club announced on Wednesday.

The Pharaohs player was injured on Tuesday after scoring twice as Al-Nasr cruised to a 4-2 victory over Al-Taawon in the Saudi Crown Prince Cup round of 16.

"Medical scans revealed that Abd-Rabou picked a torn knee ligament. The player needs rest and rehabilitation for three weeks," Al-Nasr media centre said in a statement.

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.
