FC Kallon midfielder Saidu Fofanah scored his first goal for Sierra Leone in Leone Stars 2-1 over the Gambia in an international friendly match at the El Jadida stadium in Morocco on Saturday.

As a result, the Leone Stars stretched their unbeaten run to seven games after their latest triumph over the Gambia at the El Jadida stadium in Morocco on Saturday.

John Keister’s men won their first game after the 1-1 draw with South Sudan. Gambia led early thanks to FC Zürich striker Assan Ceesay spot-kick in the 22nd minute, only for Kei Kamara to level matters with his header two minutes later.

After the opening seven minutes, Kei Kamara could have scored for the Leone Stars when he was presented with an early chance from the penalty spot after Sullay Kaikai was brought down, but he failed to convert.

In the 22nd minute, FC Zürich striker Assan Ceesay converted for the Gambians from the penalty spot after the referee awarded the Gambia a penalty for a handball by Kei Kamara.

However, the HIFK striker made things up with a header from Sullay Kaikia’s corner kick in the 24th to restore parity at the El Jadida stadium in Morocco.

In the second half, there were no more goals as Leone Stars held on to win. Sierra Leone will take on Morocco on Tuesday in their final friendly preparation.
