Ahmed Hassan “Koka” and have both featured in UEFA Europa League’s top 10 goals of the season.

Both Egyptians have had stellar seasons playing for European teams abroad this season.

In Koka’s debut campaign with Braga, the striker has scored an impressive 15 goals in all competitions including 3 Europa League goals, 11 league goals in 18 starts and one goal in the Portuguese League Cup.

Koka’s intelligent run and deft chip over Steve Mandanda and Marseille in the Europa League has placed as the 10th best goal in the Europa League this campaign. The goal also had sentimental value as it came only days after the striker’s father had passed away.

Elneny also enjoyed a breakthrough season which saw transfer from to English club Arsenal in the January transfer window. In his time with Basel earlier this season, the midfielder scored one the finest goals of his career with a thunderbolt against Fiorentina in the Europa League which placed 5th in the top 10 goals of the season.
