The 23-year-old midfielder capped a fine display with a first half goal for Abdullah Avci’s men on Wednesday

Cheikhou Dieng was on target for Istanbul Basaksehir as they defeated ND Triglav 4-1 in a friendly game played at the Stanko Mlakar Stadium.

Igor Bukara got the curtain raiser for the Slovenian side in the fourth minute before Dieng popped up with the equaliser for his side in the 24th as the teams went into the break level pegging.

The Senegalese who spent the previous season on loan at Saint Polten in Austria was substituted during the halftime, but his goal paved the way for Eljero Elia to put the Fatih Terim team after 52 minutes.

Further goals from Edin Visca and Sokol Cikalleshi in the 75th and 85th minute respectively put the match beyond the reach of the Eagles.

The Turkish Super League outfit featured Togo international Emmanuel Adebayor for the entire duration of the game.

Istanbul Basaksehir will be hoping to challenge for top honors when the Turkish topflight season starts.
