Jarju was making his full debut for the local Scorpions as he partnered teammate Pa Omar Jobe in attack for former Real de Banjul coach Alagie Sarr's team and got the all important winner in the 29th minute with a clinical finish from Sainey Sambou's clever past.

"I'm excited to score on my full debut for my country. I have been waiting patiently for my chance after starting on the bench in the first leg at home". Said Jarju.

"Scoring is not my problem as I have shown in the league with Real de Banjul - I don't have pressure playing football because it is a normal routine for me".

Club captain Alagie Nyabally was on top of his game as he produced two successive saves in the closing stages to deny the host.

Saikou Mansally and defender Salifu Krubally all started the game with Mbye Faye and Ebrima Jarju on the bench.

The Gambia will now shift their focus to this weekends qualifier against Mali in Banjul as the race for Kenya 2018 Africa Nations Championship hits up.
