Goals and assists from African players abroad: February 10-12

In our latest chronicle of African goal contributions abroad, Morocco is the African nation most represented with Saudi-based striker Abderrazak Hamdallah continuing his excellent form after featuring at the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Hamdallah scored twice in Al-Ittihad’s 5-0 midweek victory over Al Adalh, keeping the club tied with Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr at the top of the Saudi Pro League table with 37 points each. Hamdallah has an incredible 143 goals in 140 appearances over five seasons since moving to Saudi Arabian football from Qatar, where he previously scored 57 goals in 65 matches.
