Gambia striker Amadou Jawo has scored his second goal of the season for Elfsborg in Sunday’s 4-4 draw against Durgarden at the Olympic Stadium in Stockholm.

Elfsborg have moved on to 4th position and 44 points on the Allsvenskan table.

The Gambian attacker is said to be a brother to Omar Jawo who scored the Scorpions’s only goal in the team’s 3-1 win against Burkina Faso in the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers earlier this month.

Jawo slotted in the 3rd goal to give Elfsborg the lead in the 64th minute when the score line was 2-2 with early goals from Djurgarden’s Ekong and Igboananike. Ekong and Ishizaki recorded their names in the score sheet for Elfsborg.

Playing against opponents were fellow Gambian compatriots Pa Dembo Touray, Gambia’s goalkeeper, defender Kebba Ceesay and Amadou Jawo, who replaced Keene in the second half.

Within minutes of entering the pitch Jawo rolled in a free kick that went into the post and took the match to a 3-2 lead for his side.

The lead became short-lived when Gustafsson sent in a 73-minute equalizer for Djurgarden but Avdic, who gave Elfsborg another chance to take all three points away after his 75th minute goal, was held back when Djurgarden’s Igboananike netted his 90th minute goal to neutralise the final scores.

Djurgarden are now 8th position with 39 points.

In another encounter, Omar Jawo’s Gefle beat GAIS 1-0 on Sunday in the Swedish top-flight league.


Ebrima Sohna’s Sandefjord’s crisis has deepened as they fall yet to a 1-0 defeat to Haugesund on Sunday.  The bottom-place strugglers who look certain of playing at a lower league next season are helpless in turning the tables in their favour.

Muhammed Keita’s Strømsgodset enjoyed a 4 - 1 win over Hønefoss. 

Tijan Jaiteh’s Brann, who are also limping at the bottom of the Norwegian top-flight league, lost 3-2 to Lillestrøm.


Ousman Jallow’s and Paul Jatta’s Brondby beat Randers FC 2-1 on Sunday to shift three places on the Danish SAS-Ligaen table.
