KingFut rounds up the Pharaohs Abroad action across Europe this week, to keep you up to date with Egyptian players overseas.

Omar Gaber – Basel (Switzerland)

May 21 – Swiss Super League: Omar Gaber was excluded from the matchday squad as his side fell to  2-1 defeat away to Young Boys. The result mattered little though, with the league title already sewn up weeks ago. The champions’ next match is the Swiss Cup final on Thursday, where they will face Sion.

Ahmed Hassan ‘Kouka’ – SC Braga (Portugal)

May 21 – Primeira Liga: Ahmed Hassan ‘Kouka’ was once again omitted from the squad, as Braga lost 2-0 to Tondela in the final round of the 2016/17 Portuguese Primeira Liga season. The result saw their opponents guarantee their safety, after waging a nervous relegation battle towards the end of the campaign. Braga have finished in fifth place, and will participate in the qualifying rounds of the UEFA Europa League ahead of next season.

Amr Warda – PAOK Thessaloniki (Greece)

May 21 – Greece Super League: Similar to the other two Pharaohs Abroad, Warda also failed to make the bench in his side’s 1-0 win over Panionios in the league play-off. The win was PAOK’s second so far, with a potential three points to be added on if their abandoned match against Panathinaikos is counted as a forfeit for the latter.

May 24 – Greece Super League: Warda was once again left out of the matchday squad as PAOK edged Panionios for the second time in four days, to take control of the league play-off group. Spyros Risvanis scored an unfortuante own goal in the 14th minute, and the visitors held on for a hugely important win.
