Ahmed Hassan Mahgoub (Arabic: أحمد حسن محجوب; born 5 March 1993), known as Kouka[1] or Koka,[2][3] is an Egyptian professional footballer who plays for Portuguese club S.C. Braga and the Egyptian national team as a striker.

Club career[edit]

Al Ahly[edit]

Kouka started his youth career with Al Ahly SC. After Al Ahly did not offer him a professional contract, he decided to leave and in December 2011 he joined Portuguese side Rio Ave.

Rio Ave[edit]

Kouka played for Rio Ave's youth team for one season. He was promoted to the first team in the beginning of the 2012–13 season and debuted on 9 September 2012 against F.C. Paços de Ferreira. In February 2015 Kouka was second in the top scorers chart in the Portuguese league.[4]

Braga[edit]

On 26 August 2015, Kouka signed a five-year contract with S.C. Braga.[5][6] On 22 October 2015, he scored the first goal in Braga's 3-2 Europa League group stage win against Olympique de Marseille. In tears during his celebration, Hassan dedicated the goal to his father, who had died the day before.

International career[edit]

As an Egyptian under-20 national team player, Kouka played at the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Turkey scoring twice against Iraq[7] and England,[8] while assisting his country's only goal against Chile.[9]
