April 14, 2015 By Sahr Morris Jr.
Sierra Leonean duo, Mohamed ‘Poborsky’ Bangura and Mohamed ‘Bilili’ Bangura, were both on target over the weekend for their respective clubs in the Swedish Allsvenskan (topflight) and Second Division league respectively.
‘Poborsky’ Bangura’s 84th minute strike gave AIK a 3-1 home victory against Gefle in the Allsvenskan league on Sunday.
The goal was the former Celtic striker’s first in three matches and the forward was very excited to hear AIK supporters singing his name again after scoring.
He said: “I was so happy to get me name on the score sheet and despite not scoring in the previous matches I knew it would happen someday, but certainly not like this quickly. It is an indescribable feeling. It is wonderful.”
The former FC Kallon forward, who chose to celebrate his goal with coach Nebojsa Novakovic and the whole bench, said: “They congratulated me and said that it was a nice goal, I said ‘I’m back’.”
Whilst ‘Poborsky’ Bangura’s goal sealed victory for AIK, ‘Bilili’ Bangura’s goal was a consolation for Härnösands FF who were defeated 2-1 away to Hudiksvalls FF.
Bilili, who played full time, grabbed his goal in the 90th minute.
In Sweden, midfielder Ibrahim Kallay played full time for IFK Lulea in their 1-1 draw with Forward in the First Division league.
In Azerbaijan, the all Sierra Leonean battle between Alfred Sankoh of Khazar Lankaran and Gibrilla Woobay of Neftçi ended in a 2-2 stalemate. However, Sankoh was dismissed in the 33rd minute after incurring two yellow cards, whilst Woobay scored the equaliser for Neftçi in the 70th minute.
