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.
