Egypt's promising midfielder Mahmoud Kahraba continued his impressive start to the season with a fourth goal in as many games as Luzern defeated Grasshoppers 2-1 in the Swiss league on Saturday.

The 19-year-old came on as a substitute in the 78th minute when the score was 1-1, notching home with four minutes remaining to give his side all three points. Kahraba escaped his marker to latch onto a deft pass and fire home with aplomb. 

He also scored in three matches with Luzern - a 2-0 victory over Zurich, a 1-1 draw with Young Boys and 1-0 victory over Lausanne.

Kahraba was part of Egypt's squad for the Ghana home and away clashes in the World Cup qualifying playoff. However, he was kept on the bench as the Pharaohs were hammered 6-1 in Kumasi but started the second leg in Egypt as the hosts won 2-1.
