Ghanaian forward Dominic Adiyiah and his Ivorian teammates midfielder Konan Kouadio and striker Ismael Beko Fofana are runners-up this season in Norway's premier football championship. With just one match remaining it is impossible for Fredrikstad to relinquish the second spot after losing out to eventual champions Staebeck.

Meanwhile, Nigerian striker Abiola Douda could become a champion in Sweden in his first season. The Swedish top league has two more matches to go but his club Kalmar still leads rivals Elfsborg with three points.

Last weekend produced few goals for Africans playing in Scandinavia. In Sweden, Ghanaian striker Jones Kusi Asare scored after just five minutes on the pitch in the 71st minute to hand Djurgarden a 1-0 win over lowly placed Ljunskile on Sunday in the premiership, known as Allsvenskan. The strike was Asare's 5th of the season.  In neighboring Norway, Ivorian forward Didier Konan Ya scored twice in the 2nd half as Rosenborg whipped Aalesund 2-1 in the country's top league.
