Rabat – Moroccan football player Ayoub El Kaabi has made an impressive debut at China’s Hebei Fortune club.
It did not take long for the 25-year-old Atlas Lion to show the extent of his talent. RSB Berkane’s former player scored his first goal in China, Thursday, August 2.
Despite losing to Beijing Guoan (6-3), the international football player can be proud of his beautiful performance.
Earlier this month, El Kaabi joined the Chinese league by signing a two-year contract with Hebei Fortune.
Morocco’s striker left the Moroccan league for the Chinese championship after scoring 12 goals last season for RSB Berkane. The club agreed to let go of one of its best players for almost €6 million.
Throughout 2018, El Kaabi proved his worth. At the African Nations Championship (CHAN) 2018, the Moroccan sensation was the top scorer in the history of the competition. His performance helped him secure a spot among the 23 Moroccan players selected to play in the World Cup.
El Kaabi made his international debut for Morocco on January 13 during the 2018 CHAN match against Mauritania, scoring 3 goals. The RSB Berkane striker was named Man of the Match on January 31 in the Morocco-Libya semi-final of CHAN. Morocco won the game 3-1.
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) chose El Kaabi as the best player in CHAN 2018 due to the world-class performance and pure talent he displayed in the tournament, scoring 9 goals in 5 matches.
