Sokol Cikalleshi returned with a goal in Basaksehir after being loaned to Akhisar during the past season. The Albanian National Team striker was among the best players in the friendly match between Basaksehir and the Slovenian team of Triglav that ended with 4-1 score in favor of the Istanbul team.
The Kavaja born player proved that he might be a valuable element for the team in the next season, despite the overpopulation in the defense sector. His role may be decisive in the team's match in the Turkish Super-League and the Champions League where Basaksehir will play the third qualifying round.
His goal in this match gained even more value due to the fact that Emmanuel Adebayor, seen ass the most important striker of this team, played the entire 90 minutes without scoring a goal.
