Gambia's goalie Pa Dembo Touray and defender Kebba Ceesay starred in Djurgarden's easy ride over Spartak Moscow in Friday's friendly match at the Stockholm stadium.

After a slightly hesitant start, Stockholm rode out and won 3-0 (1-0) amid 1632 spectators.

Spartak's 3-1 victory in Gothenburg earlier and being second place in the Russian league filed more respect for them. 

Djurgarden began the match with a reverent respect for the guests who were allowed to take care of the baton first.

Spartak could certainly just create a few half chances of their possession, thanks to the Royal Canal, whose performance was exemplary with the right team.

They tried to respond by increasing the pace and got a good chance that sets Ibson steering the ball beyond Pa Demba Touray's goal.

Djurgarden led after just over a half hour of play. John Oremo opened the scores in the 35th minute; Igboannaike made it 2-0 in the 46th and 11 minutes later Touma struck to cement a 3-0 win.

Before the game was half over Spartak Moscow produced their best scoring opportunity. After a much messed up situation in which players lay in a heap in the penalty area, the player beat Djurgarden Jakolev to shoot, but Pa Dembo Touray made a world class rescue.

With just a few weeks to the start of the Swedish Allsvenskan on July 18, Djurgarden looks set for their opening season clash against Kalmar.
