Sierra Leone: Kargbo Bids Farewell With Hat-Trick in Friskaviljor Win

Sierra Leonean striker, Ibrahim Kargbo scored a hat-trick in his final match for Swedish division 3 side FriskaViljor as they defeated Ytterhogdal 6-2 in the promotional play-off clash.

FriskaViljor will face Björna in their final play-off match but Kargbo, who joined the club during the second half of the season on loan from FC Kallon, will miss the action due to expiration of his visa.

The striker, who is expected in Freetown on Wednesday (today), opened his account in the 49th minute to give his side a 3-2 lead, and 20 minutes later, he scored his second of the night which rounded the score line to 4-2 before teammate, Chan Baroline, scored in the 79th minute to give them a 5-2 lead.

Kargbo's hat-trick came in the 90th minute of the match and it was the final goal of the match as FriskaViljor moved on with just a point needed to gain promotion to the second division.

FriskaViljor coach, Frans Eriksson, was pleased with his team's performance saying: "We are in a positive trend. It's good for the team and good speed in training. As we are playing now, we would have been at the top in the third grade. Attack pair Mikael Sellin and Albert Kargbo have worked well and produced many goals."

Despite joining the club in the second half of the season, Kargbo scored ten goals in nine league matches, and five in three play-off matches.

Elsewhere in the English League One, wingerAbdulai Bell-Baggie was introduced in the 81st minute as his side, Tranmere Rovers, secured a 0-1 away win over Bradford City.
