After a World Cup break, Gambian football stars in the Norwegian First Division League will get back to action on Sunday.

Among the Gambian ball-pushers, Abdou Darboe had a successful break after wins in the NM Cup.

Abdou Darboe’s Honefoss BK 5-3 penalties win over Sarpsborg 08 was enough to send them to the 4th round in the Norwegian NM Cup on Wednesday.

Both sides drew 2-2, all the way to extra time before deciding the game on penalties at the Sarpsborg Stadium.

Abdou Darboe was benched during his side's glorious win on a lower league opponent.

HBK is getting set to return back to action on Sunday against Strømsgodset in the Norwegian First Division.
