KingFut rounds up the Pharaohs Abroad action this week, to keep you up to date with Egyptian players overseas.
Mahmoud ‘Trézéguet’ Hassan – Mouscron (Belgium)
April 23 – Europa League play-offs: Egypt’s Mahmoud Hassan ‘Trezeguet’ played the full 90 minutes as Genk thrashed Royal Excel Mouscron 6-0 in the fourth fixture of the Europa League play offs. Following the heavy loss, Mouscron’s chances to qualify for the Europa League faded away as they currently occupy the fifth spot with just three points from four matches.
April 26 – Europa League play-offs: Trezeguet’s side drew 2-2 in their Europa League playoff match with Lokeren, with Kabasele and Peyre scoring for the home side. Persoons and de Sutter scored for Lokeren, however it seemingly will not be enough for either side to progress to the next stage of the playoffs. Mouscron’s next game is against Roeselare, who are currently bottom of the playoff group.
Mohamed Elneny – Arsenal (England)
April 26 – English Premier League: Mohamed Elneny watched from the bench as Arsenal triumphed over reigning champions Leicester City thanks to an 86th-minute Robert Huth own goal. The win sees Arsenal remain in the increasingly futile chase of fourth place and UEFA Champions League qualification.
Ahmed Hassan ‘Koka’ – Braga (Portugal)
April 23 – Primeira Liga: Braga suffered a 3-1 away defeat against Pacos de Ferreira in gameweek 30 as Koka continued to miss through injury. The guests wasted two opportunities to take the lead before Luiz Phellype gave the home side the lead on the half-hour mark. The hosts doubled their lead early in the second half through Andrézinho. In the 71st minute, Rodrigo Pinho pulled one goal back for Braga, but their hopes of getting anything from this match were dashed when Phellype scored from the spot in the 87th minute. Following the defeat, Braga remain in fifth place on 51 points in the standings.
Karim Hafez – Lens (France)
April 24 – Ligue 2: Egypt’s Karim Hafez played the full 90 minutes as Le Havre defeated Lens 1-0 in the 34th fixture of the French Ligue 2.
