 1 March 2018 – Bulgarian outfit Kekusi had their stars to thank after almost getting scored thrice by Gambia international Ali Sowe.

Sowe has been on top form lately for table-toppers Skenderbeu Korce having initially endured a brief goal-duck.

Fortunes though changed for the former Gambia U-20 goal-getter when he turned on the style yesterday afternoon by leading his club’s come-from-behind to force a final 2-2 draw in a league game.

Ali, on loan from Italian Serie A side Chievo Verona until end of the current campaign, first halved the deficit to make it 2-1 in the 62nd minute after Kukesi led in the first-half.

As the hosts moved heaven and earth to defend a now fragile lead, amid pressure from Skednerbeu, the scorpion capitalised on a defence howler to slot home his second of the day as his season goal tally soared to eight.

The 23-year-old is sweating to convince Chievo’s coach that he’s worth the keep for the next season’s Serie A and hopes his goals walk the talk for him.
