Savage and Jallow’s HJK win record Finnish Cup title

17

Gambia duo Demba Savage and Ousman Jallow’s HJK Helsinki secured the 2017 Suomen Cup title after a 1-0 victory over SJK in Seinäjoki.
The record-league champions won the tie through a lone goal scored in the 77th minute to become the most successful Finnish club with 13 Cup wins.

Savage, who won his second Cup title, starred the entire match for HJK while his compatriot Jallow was left on the bench by coach Mika Lehkosuo though that didn’t prevent him from celebrating with his teammates as soon as referee Marko Grönholm blew the final whistle.
HJK can complete the double if they beat defending league champions IFK Mariehamn at home on Wednesday.
