Gambia: Kandji Rescues Club

Macoumba Kandji scored his first goal pulling in a last-minute equaliser for his new Greek club. Kallonis, club of the 26-year-old were on the losing end after Pindonis opening goal two minutes to the second-half to put Olympiakos Volos in the lead.

Making it from the starting lineup for the first time since his arrival from Dynamo on a short term contract, Kandji stamped in an individual effort taking a full scale advantage of his rare starting place.

Kallonis would have plummet down to tenth placed in the league standing of Greece second division if they had lost which could end hopes of the club competing for promotion to the top flight.

But determined to repay coach Tennes's trust, Macoumba Kandji slotted in a last-minute equaliser beating past the goalkeeper exactly 90 minute of play.

His first league goal rescued Kallonis from slipping to what would have been their seventh defeat of the season after twenty league matches.

Scorpion-hopeful, Kandji who grew up in Gambia earlier voiced his desire to don the Gambia national strips.

The Gambia football Association earlier revealed of its efforts to have Kandji switch allegiance to the Gambia before the game against Ivory Coast.
