The Africans found the back of the net as their teams settled for a share of the spoils in Saturday’s Turkish Super Lig fixture

Emem Eduok and Mbaye Diagne scored a goal each to neutralise Arouna Kone’s brace as Kasimpasa played a 2-2 draw against Sivasspor.

The Apaches came from behind twice in an enthralling encounter at the Sivas 4 Eylul Stadium.

Kone broke the deadlock for the hosts in the 13th minute with his right-footed effort past Ramazan Kose, thanks to Robinho’s assist.

Shortly, Eduok drew both sides level in the 18th minute after firing Mbaye Niang’s assist into an empty net for his seventh goal of the season.

In the 83rd minute, the Cote d’Ivoire international restored the Yigidos’ lead from the penalty spot – his 11th effort in 24 league games this season.

Again, Sivasspor’s lead was short-lived as Mbaye Niang’s effort in stoppage time rescued a point for Kemal Ozdes’ side who have won just a game in their last five league outings.

Nigeria’s Kenneth Omeruo and Egypt’s Mahmoud Trezeguet played for the full 90 minutes while Ghana's John Boye featured for Sivasspor as a 38th-minute substitute for Algeria's Carl Medjani.

Kasimpasa, placed 11th in the Turkish Super Lig table, are seven points adrift of Sivasspor who sit in the sixth spot with 38 points from 25 games.
