June 30, 2022 – Egyptian striker, Omar Elkholy, has left the crowd in awe after an incredible performance that saw his team obliterate their opponents at the New Jersey Annual Invitational. 

The phenomenal striker who has suffered severe injuries, came back from three surgeries to score a hat trick in the first half that put his team ahead. Omar returned in the second half to seal their victory with two more, breaking the hearts of the opposing team, who were only able to secure two consolation goals.

In a post-match interview, the athletic forward opened up about the effect of having three surgeries in such a short time and thanked his family and fiancee, for their unwavering support in getting him back on his feet.

“These back-to-back injuries have only made me stronger,” says Omar. “I have had compartment syndrome for so long that I didn’t know it was holding me back until I couldn’t walk anymore. I feel like I have new legs again after my surgeries and I’ve never felt this good in my life. I wouldn’t be able to do a comeback without the support of my family and my fiancée Sarah. I am just so happy to be back on the field again, it’s my escape, it always has been.” 

Every year, the New Jersey Annual Invitational is held in Harrison New Jersey and brings both homegrown and MLS academy players to participate in an invitational match. The teams bring their best and brightest players to test each other’s metal in celebration of the beautiful game.

Barely five minutes into the match, Omar Elkholy opened up the game with a towering header that put his team a goal up. The prolific striker then established his team’s dominance of the pitch with two successive right-foot finishes.

Although the opposing team, made up of many DC United ex-academy players, was able to secure two goals before halftime, Omar Elkholy returned to break their hearts in the second half, with two additional goals that put a comeback beyond their grasp and secured the win for his team.
