The Egypt U-20 defender’s first match with his new club – who finished fourth in Latvia last season – will be against Scottish side Aberdeen in the UEFA Europa League, making him one of the few Egyptians participating in European competitions.

Nabil earned his move to FK Daugava Riga on a free transfer without undergoing trials, as the club expressed their confidence in the young Cairo-born defender’s ability.

Daugava Riga are currently seventh in the Latvian Higher League (Virslīga), and will be competing in the qualifying round of UEFA Europa League against Aberdeen on the 4th and 10th of July.
