Sierra Leone international striker, Sheka Fofanah, fired a brace as Al-Minna came back from two goals down to draw 2-2 against Al-Zawra on Tuesday. 

Goals from Abdul-Raheem and A Abbas put Al-Zawra in charge in the 33rd, 36th minutes respectively.

However, Fofanah’s first competitive goals for the club were enough to rescue a point. The former Al Nasr player, who joined the Iraqi top-flight last month already proving himself.  

The former Al-Merrikh and Frýdek-Místek man scored either side of the half to ensure his side maintain their 100% start after four opening league games.

His first goal came in the 34th minutes to cancel out Al-Zwara’s Abdul Raheem 33-minute opener.

Fofanah scored Al Minaa’s equaliser in the 89th minute after a strong run into the box to slot home pass Al-Zwara’s keeper.

The point leaves Al-Minaa’s top of the Iraqi Premier League after four games.
