El Kaddouri then hit the woodwork again in the 41st minute, befiore unfotnately limping out of the game with an injury problem.
In the Fans’ Man of the Match poll, El Kaddouri garnered 51.78% of the popular vote and won the individual title, leaving Stefan Schwab in second.
Mr Effective excelled in midfield yet again, assisting the goal and generally dominating the midfield to help his team on all fronts.
