Olunga to play against Hashim Al Abdullatif in the Qatar Super League

As Michael Olunga sealed a deal to play in the Qatar Super League, he will be playing with another Kenyan, Hashim Al Abdullatif.

The 20-year-old Hashim Al Abdullatif is a regular player for the Xavi-coach Al Sadd. He also featured in the first half yesterday as his team edged Olunga’s Al Duhail 3-1.

Born in Mombasa, Hashim joined Al Sadd in 2019 from Al Arabi.

He has represented the Qatar national team across several junior levels (U19, U20, U23).

He is a graduate of the famous Aspire Academy in Qatar and had a short stint at the Hoffenheim Academy in Germany.

Olunga joined from Kashiwa Reysol where he was the top scorer of the Japanese league in a reported transfer fee of 7 million Euros (approximately sh890 million) from the Qatari club.

The Golden Boot award in the Japanese J-1 League was after notching 28 goals from 32 matches.
