Friday, August 17, 2018

The Scorpion eligible striker, Aboubakary Kanté scored his first goal for Avenir Sportif Béziers in the second-tier of French league football after his side beat Troyes AC 1-0 at the weekend.

Kanté who scored the only goal in the match, was handed a third consecutive start by Coach Mathieu Chabert at the Stade de l’Aube.

The 24-year-old Gambia eligible striker who was born in the French commune in the northwestern community of Pontoise, started his professional career at Paris FC five years ago before being loaned to CA Bastia.

Finding playing time hard to come by at the Paris club, the 6ft 0in attacker left for AS Saint-Ouen-l’Aumône in the fifth-tier of French football where he redeemed his career by netting six goals in 12 appearances.

A move to Béziers followed, guiding them to French Ligue 2 promotion with seven goals to his name.

Booba has scored 32 goals in 85 appearances since turning professional in 2013. Béziers currently lie seventh on the 20-team French Ligue 2 table with six points after three outings.
