Dilly Duka has scored his first goal in Albania.
The former Red Bulls and FC Motown midfielder found the net in FK Partizani’s 3-1 upset loss to Luftetari Gjirokastra Saturday.
Still, Partizani (16-5-6, 54 points) enjoys a nine-point lead over second-place Kukesi (13-8-6, 45) in the Albanian Super Division.
Duka scored in the fourth minute to lift the hosts into a 1-0 lead, but they could not hold off Luftetari Gjirokastra (10-13-4, 34), which is in seventh place out of 10 teams.
Duka played a vital role for FC Motown, which reached the National Premier Soccer League final last season.
Barring a major collapse down the stretch, Partizana should reach the UEFA Champions League qualifiers for the 2019-20 season.
