Modou Barrow posts Twitter message after hitting international landmark
By Will Butcher
Leeds winger Modou Barrow has revealed his delight on Twitter after scoring his first international goal for The Gambia against Central African Republic.
On-loan star Barrow scored his country’s first goal in Bakau, before Nottingham Forest star Mustapha Carayol netted the winner in a 2-1 victory during the friendly.
Posting on his personal Twitter account, Barrow was elated after finding the back of the net for the first time in just his fifth international appearance for the African side.

On loan from Swansea, 24-year-old winger Barrow has struggled for regular game time under former Swans boss Garry Monk and is yet to start a game for the Yorkshire giants.
Playing for a combined total of 83 minutes in a Leeds shirt so far, Barrow has found the competition for a first-team spot at Elland Road too hot to handle.

The likes of Alfonso Pedraza, Hadi Sacko, Kemar Roofe, Stuart Dallas and Souleymane Doukara are all vying for a spot out wide, which has pushed Barrow way down the pecking order.
The Gambian ace could struggle to earn his place on the bench after only twice making Monk’s matchday squad in Leeds’ last four fixtures, as the Whites travel to Reading on Saturday.
A win for Leeds could see them leapfrog third placed Huddersfield and edge closer to the automatic promotion places if the Terriers lose to Burton Albion.
