Gambia international Abdou Darboe, who is plying his trade in Norway, has scored his first goal for his new club Mjondalen IF in their 4-0 win over Tromsdalen on Sunday.

Mjondalen IF is a first division outfit in Norway.

Darboe has so far made six appearances for the side since his loan move in September.

The 19-year-old forward, who received his first call-up for the Scorpions friendly match against Mexico in Germany before the 2010 World Cup in June, joined Honefoss in 2009 when his team was playing at the first division.

He made nine appearances for his previous club before the side gained promotion to the highest top flight league, the Norwegian Eliteserien, this year. He also made five appearances for Honefoss while playing at the top league before his loan move to Mjondalen.

The Gambia international star, who promises to have a good show at Mjondalen, got an injury time goal when he went up and rode into a corner in Sunday's game, according to the club's site.

The other three goals were scored by Mads Hansen (4 min), Erik Middle Garden (17 min) and O. Joachim Solberg (61 min) to increase their points to 31 and stand on tenth position in the 12-team league.
