Striker Ali Sowe scores twice in win over Plovdiv

Monday, December 31, 2018

Gambian international striker Ali Sowe has scored a brace at the weekend for CSKA Sofia who claimed a 2-1 win over Botev Plovdiv.

The blizzard conditions proved highly beneficial to CSKA Sofia, who claimed the victory thanks directly to the poor condition at the Balgarska Armia Stadium in Sofia.

The on-loan Chievo Verona attacker converted an effort after 14 minutes before wrapping up the match moments later in an intriguing fashion.

As the ball was squared across the box, the cross took an incredibly fortunate divot off a lump of ice, diverted past a Plovdiv defender and directly into the path of the former Gamtel striker.

Sowe, duly obliged by stooping to head home from close range, wrapped up his brace in what could be described as a snow goal in classic age-old combination. It was his third goal for CSKA who now lie second on the standing heading into the winter break.
