Goals and assists from African players in the Middle East: August 25-29

Over the last two seasons in the Qatar Stars League, no player has scored as many goals as reigning goal king Michael Olunga. The giant Kenyan striker continues to produce for Al-Duhail since joining the club midway through the 2020-21 season with an astounding 55 goals in 53 league matches. The 29-year-old former Gor Mahia star is showing no signs of letting up this season with two goals in Al-Duhail’s victory over Muaither SC last week bringing his total to three from his team’s first two matches this season.
