John Antwi etched his name in the Egyptian top flight league after scoring a hat-trick for Misr El Maqasa to become the all-time foreign top scorer with 63 goals.
Samuel Owusu stock in the Serbian league continues to rise with every passing game. The former Vision FC midfielder dragged NK Cukaricki from the jaws of defeat in the win against Rad Beograd.
Kingsley Schindler kept up his recent found form as he registered his name on the scoresheet before turning provider for the winner. The versatile midfielder would surely be an important buy for FC Nuremberg should they sign him in January.
