Kahraba’s Grasshoppers face Lille in UEFA Champions League

Posted on July 18, 2014

Kahraba - Grasshoppers

Young Egyptian forward  could make his Grasshopper Zurich debut against French side Lille, as the two sides were drawn together in the third qualifying round of the 2014/2015 UEFA Champions League.

The 20-year-old Egyptian player Mahmoud Abdel-Moneim, better known as , joined Grasshoppers on loan in May 2014, after his contract was annulled by FC Luzern under the pretext of misconduct.

Following the draw for the preliminary stages of the UEFA Champions League that was conducted in Nyon, Switzerland on Friday, the Swiss side are set to face Lille on July 29/30 in the first match of their journey to qualify for the Champions League group stages.

The Zurich-based side have been full of praise for their Pharaoh as he showed great determination and skill in training and friendly matches.

Kahraba now has a great opportunity to prove himself to his coach and gain his team-mates’ trust on the pitch as he may very well be handed his official debut against the talented Ligue 1 side, who boast the likes of Nigeria’s Vincent Enyeama and Ivory Coast’s Salomon Kalou among their ranks.

The winner over the two legs will qualify to the definitive round that will lead to the Champions League group stages.
