Gambian legend Biri Biri’s son Yusupha Njie this week grabbed his first goal in the Portuguese top tier.

The 23-year-old plastered home the game’s winner after the tie looked head for a stalemate.

Making his first start since returning from a two-month injury lay-off, Njie out-jumped his marker in the box to connect his head on a teasing corner kick from the left that beat a hapless Maritimo FC net-minder in the 80th minute.

The goal doubled Boavista’s advantage reducing Maritimo’s initial first goal to a mere consolation after Mateaus had banged home the equaliser for Njie and his mates.
