Arafa El-Sayed

Arafa El-Sayed scored his second hat-trick in as many games as Tala’a El-Gaish moved to second in the  with a 6-1 win over  on Wednesday.

This season’s current top scorer continued his superb form with his second consecutive hat-trick – taking his tally to 9 goals this season after only seven games – as he led the Army’s Vanguards to a 6-1 thrashing of third-placed side Maqassa.

The 26-year-old striker, who was transferred to El-Gaish over the summer after only making six league appearances for Zamalek – four of which were off the bench – hit three past goalkeeper and former Whites team-mate Abdel-Wahid El-Sayed.

Arafa scored in the 3rd, 78th and 87th minutes, London-born American-Ghanaian striker Kwame ‘Dodji’ Adjeman-Pamboe hit a brace, while Said Kamal was also on target for Anwar Salama’s side; leaving Wael Farag’s goal for Maqassa a small consolation.

Arafa El-Sayed’s form could very well lead to his first Egypt call-up after Al Ahly striker Amr Gamal suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury, while Pharaohs boss Shawky Gharib confirms he’s monitoring the domestic league for breakthrough replacements.

Tala’a El-Gaish are now second in the league with 13 points from seven games, trailing only Haras El-Hodood, who have a game in hand, by one point.
