Modou Ceesay hits Brace in Zilina Win

Modou Ceesay
The Gambian and Zilina hot-shot Modou Ceesay hit a brace on Tuesday to help his team [Zilina] to secure a 3-0 against Zlate Moravce at home in the Slovakian league one.
The Gambian international striker [Modou Ceesay] scored the opening goal in the 29th minute of the game before coming with another in the fifth minute boosting the fans’ happiness and shouting Ceesay’s name on the stands with a Mexican wave.
T. Majtan’s 70th minute goal marked the third and the final goal of the game giving Zilina a clean sheet of 3-0 before being reduced to ten men after Moraviec was sent off the pitch for miss cunduct.
Modou Ceesay’s potentials in the striking arena have attracted many teams in europe to land the Gambian international to their clubs. He help his team to qualify foe the 2010-2011 UEAFA Chapions league for the first time in the history of Zilina after scoring a fantastic scissor kick against Sparta Prague.
Ceesay, nicknamed Zico in Slovakia, is much more technical and creative than you would give a player of his size credit for. He tends to drop back into offensive midfield positions and attempt to carve out opportunities by himself rather than wait for one to arise inside the box.
He is a surprisingly good passer of the ball and his pace is also impressive for his build. Predictably, he is outstanding in the air and often wins key headers for his team inside the area.
Just four years ago, when Momodou Ceesay was beginning to play his trade for Gambian club Wallidan, Belgian side KVC Westerlo spotted the potential in the towering forward and signed him at the age of 18.

Ceesay injected power and presence to the Jupiler league side but failed to make a lasting impression as in 32 appearances he failed to find the back of the net and was released after a two year spell.

On hand to snap the player up on a free transfer were Slovakian champions MSK Zilina who landed the striker who would soon establish himself as one of the top prospects in the league.
