Gambian striker Pa Dibba scored on his debut match for his Turkish new club Eyüpspor during their 2-0 away win over Bursaspor in their week-three fixture of the Turkish 1 Lig (Second Division league) played at the Timsah Arena on Saturday.

The 33-year-old scored his side's second goal in the 86th minute after Timur Temeltas' opener in the 65th minute for Eyüpspor.

The goal was the first by the Gambian international after moving to Turkish Second Division side Eyüpspor last week.

The Farafenni-born striker extended his stay in Turkey after leaving Adana Demirspor to sign a two-year contract with Eyüpspor last Tuesday.

The veteran Gambian striker scored 11 goals in 46 games for Adana Demirspor after signing for the Adana-based club in 2020 from Chinese side Shanghai Shenxin.

He now opened his scoring account for Eyüpspor in the Turkish Second Division League.

The victory puts Eyüpspor 2nd position with 9 points, levelled with league leaders, while Bursaspor sit 16 position with 1 points after three matches.
