As part of preparation ahead of the new French Ligue 2, Gambian international winger, Yankuba Jarju scored for his side FC Pau during their 2-2 draw against Toulouse in their pre-season game played at the Stade de Sede on Friday.

The 23-year-old attacker restored FC Pau’s lead in the 72nd minute of the game with a clinical finished just before Toulouse forced the game to a 2-2 draw.
