The towering frontman converted a penalty eight minutes past the hour mark for his fifth goal in all competitions with Konyaspor this season.

The club lie second in the league table with 45 points, seven behind leaders Trabzonspor, who have a game in hand.

Kouka has taken his tally to 100 goals in European football since he joined the youth academy of Portugal's Rio Ave in late 2011.

 

He scored 38 goals with Greek side Olympiacos, 32 with Rio Ave, 25 with Portugal's Braga and five with Konysapor.

The 28-year-old joined Konyaspor from Greek giant Olympiacos on a season-long loan deal in the summer. He was left out of Egypt's squad for the ongoing African Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
