Gambian striker Yankuba Minteh has won his first professional trophy with Dutch team Feyenoord. 

The talented striker has made his mark with the Dutch team since joining them in a loan deal from Newcastle.

Feyenoord beat NEC Nijmegen 1-0 on Sunday to win the Dutch Cup in a game that had to be halted twice.

Brazilian Igor Paixao scored the winner  in the 59th-minute after  a sweeping move from Feyenoord. 

It was a bitter sweet moment for the talented Gambian striker Minteh who was sent off in the 72nd minute, after receiving two cautions in as many minutes.

The match at Rotterdam’s De Kuip was halted twice after fireworks were set off and a giant banner caught fire, causing extensive smoke.

The banner fell into the moat around the stadium and was extinguished by firefighters with no apparent danger to spectators.

The players were taken off the field with 55 minutes played in the game, spending time in the changing room before the match resumed.
