Gambia's versatile player Pa Modou Jagne featured in Swiss side St Gallen's hard fought 5-1win over FC Flawil in the Swiss Cup on Saturday.

Jagne was substituted in the 63rd minute for Sutter, who went ahead to score the 3rd goal. 

Free's brace and goals from Calabro and Lehmann were enough to give St Gallen the necessary points in the final matches. Brunner scored Flawil's goal.

St Gallen, who have 8 points and lie 7th in the Swiss Super League, walked away from further embarrassment in the championship when team coach Uli Forte took solid technical measures to book a place in the next round after numerous attempts at this level, according to the club's website.

The side is set to take on Young Boys on Wednesday in the super league.
