More African goals in Swedish football leagues

Senegalese attacker Papa Alioune Diouf has scored five times for Kalmar this season

Tunisian striker Issam Jebali scored a 77th minute penalty to give Elfsborg a 2-2 draw against title hopefuls Djurgarden in the 24th round of the Swedish premiership last weekend. This was his 7th goal in the championship.

Another African on the scoresheet was Kalmar’s Senegalese forward Papa Alioune Diouf, who broke the deadlock with a 19th minute header in a 1-all duel against Halmstad.

A powerful last minute free kick from Ken Sema of DR Congolese extraction saw Ostersund collect a point in a 2-2 draw against defending champions and league leaders Malmo.

Nigerian Kennedy Igboananike was on target for Orebro but his goal was not enough to prevent the club from going down 3-2 to relegation-threatened Ekilstuna. The Nigerian pounced on a loose ball in the 26th minute to bring the club level after Ekilstuna had grabbed an early lead.

In the lower division, the Superettan, South African midfielder Bradley Ralani scored twice from two powerful shots from outside the box in both halves to give Helsingborg a 2-0 win over Varberg.
