Career[edit]

Shoukry has made his debut with Al-Ahly in 2009-10 Egyptian Premier League on 19 October 2009 Against Petrojet.

Shoukry scored his first goal against Ittihad El-Shorta after coming on as a substitute to help Al Ahly win the game 4-2. Shoukry scored his second goal on the CAF Champions league 2010 in the second leg against Gunners in Cairo to help Al Ahly win the game 2-0. In July 2011, he moved to Telephonat Bani Sweif on a loan deal, scoring 4 goals in 15 games, in the uncompleted 2011-12 Egyptian League. Shoukry has seen many European offers, especially from German duo FC Cologne and Hoffenheim. There are many rumors that he will move to Europe in the 2012 summer transfer window. Shoukry started 2013 with Al Ahly as a substitute, but after the arrival of Mohamed Youssef the new coach Shoukry was put in the starting line up against tel.bani Swuef and scored his first goal this season with Al Ahly from a shot the match after Shoukry was in the starting line up against Enpii and scored from a volley and played a match against Ghazl el Mahla but couldn't score and had chance in the post.

International career[edit]

Shoukry was a regular member of Egypt U-20 National team and participate in 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Egypt scoring 2 goals in the tournament and against Italy U-20 leading Egypt to a 4-2 win.
