Fatoumata Kanteh strike inspires Sporting Huelva to victory over Tenerife

Fatoumata Kanteh was on the scoresheet to help Sporting Huelva secure a 2-1 win over Tenerife in Sunday’s Primera Iberdrola game.

The 23-year-old was handed her 13th league start and made a vital contribution, inspiring Sporting's return to winning ways after back-to-back defeats to Deportivo La Coruna and Levante recently.
