Super Falcons forward, Uchenna Kanu scored her first goal of the 2021 Swedish Damallsvenskan to help Linkopings to a 1-2 away win over AIK on Saturday.
The second league game of the season for Linkopings after last week’s 0-1 home defeat to Rosengard saw Uchenna Kanu scoring the opening goal of the game in the ninth minute at the Skytteholms IP (Solna).
Seven minutes later, AIK equalised through Jenny Danielsson.
In the 43rd minute, Frida Leonhardsen-Maanum scored the winning goal for Linkopings FC.
Uchenna Kanu played for the duration of the game. She joined Linkopings FC from Spanish Primera Division Women’s side, Sevilla in 2020, and scored eight goals in 22 league games for Linkopings last season.
She also scored two goals in the Svenska Cupen this season.
Linkopings occupied the fifth position on the Swedish Damallsvenskan table with three points in two games.
They will host Pitea in their next game on May 2, 2021, at the Arena Linkopings.
