Bangura strike seals AIK victory over Gefle


Mohamed ‘Poborksy’ Bangura’s 84th minute strike secured the points for AIK in their 3-1 home victory against Gefle in the Swedish Allsvenskan. 

The Former Celtic striker started repaying the faith the Swedish giant have shown when they decided to resign him until 2016 with an option to extend to 2017.

In front of 13,722 spectators at the Friends Arena, Johan Blomberg gave AIK the lead after just 49 seconds before Gefle equalized in the second half. Henok Goitom accounted for the important 2-1 goal in the 79th minute before Mohamed Bangura set the final score.

Bangura, 25, and AIK were superior in terms of energy and creativity against a Gefle side rather inexcusably playing.

The goal was his first in three matches and the forward was delighted when the AIK fans applauded his effort by singing his name again after his decisive goal.

Talking to the media he said, “I was so happy to get me name on the score sheet and despite not scoring in the previous matches I knew it would happen someday, but certainly not like this quickly. It is an indescribable feeling. It is wonderful.”

Bangura who celebrate his goal with Bosnian-born AIK’s assistant manager, Nebojsa Novakovic on the bench, said: “They congratulated me and said that it was a nice goal, I said ‘I’m back’.”

The Sierra Leone international and former Instanbul BB striker who recently recovered from a knee ligament injury will be hoping for a similar attributes when AIK face IF Elfsborg at the Borås Arena next Tuesday.
