Kouka aiming to end international goal drought against Ghana


Egypt and SC Braga forward Ahmed Hassan Kouka has revealed he needs only one goal with the national team to break his international goal drought.

The 24-year-old hasn’t scored an international goal since November 17, 2015, when he scored a brace against Chad in the first round of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers, the game which Egypt won 4-0 .

“I know that I have not scored in the last few games with Egypt, but luck comes from God. I always try to help my team-mates as much as possible,” Kouka told ONSport.

About reaching the World Cup after 28 years of absence, the forward said: “Everyone worked hard and at the highest level. This credit of this achievement goes to all players, administrators and the technical staff.”

Egypt will face Ghana on Sunday for their last World Cup qualifier, which holds no significance, as the national team have already secured their spot in the World Cup.

However, Kouka insisted that they will be going to Cape Coast for the win,”We are a big team, who always play for the win, and that’s what we are going to do in Ghana.

“We hope to honour Egypt in the World Cup. We will fight on the pitch in order to have a wonderful journey in the tournament. We are all proud to represent Egypt and the qualification to the World Cup is a gift from God,” he added..
