Einstract Brunschwick nailed deeper Hamburg. The promoted was largely dominator 4-2 and an African distinguished himself. Domi Kumbela, Congolese-born attacker scored a hat trick. This offered a smile to the red lantern.
Italy (Day 24)
Genoa returned from afar this weekend against Parma. Led 3-1 at the time of the game, players of Liverani returned to score thanks to Alberto Gilardino’s brace. But before that, the Senegalese Pape Moussa Konaté had reduced the scoring by his first goal in Serie A.
France (Day 25)
A draw that does not help anyone. Marseille held in check Saint -Etienne 1-1 Sunday at the closing of the 25th day of Ligue 1. The opportunity for Cameroon’s Nicolas Nkoulou to score his first goal of the season.
African scorers during Evian TG – Lille (2-2). The Kenyan-born Belgian Divock Origi and Cape Verdean Ryan Mendes of LOSC have responded in particular to the goal of Congolese Cédric Mongongu on penalty for the Upper Savoy.
