Ogonna Chukwudi loses in Sweden

Super Falcons midfielder started but was substituted in 78 minutes as her club Djurgarden crashed to a 2:3 home defeat at the hands of Linkopings in the Swedish women's league today.

As early as the 3rd minute, Hurtig had put the away side ahead but Schough brought the game level for the hosts in the 19th minute with a goal that delighted the homes fans.

That delight was however short-lived as Lantz put the visitors ahead again with a 22nd minute goal.

Chukwudi's team fought long and hard and were rewarded for their efforts when Jalkerud scored handsomely in 50 minutes to make it 2:2 at that point.

However, the visitor won't be denied as Blackstenius scored the last goal of the match in 72 minutes to end the score-line 2:3 in Linkopings' favour.

Chukwudi along 2 other members of her team had been substituted from around the 78th minute as Djurgarden's coach sought an equaliser in vain.

They play again on the 27th of April.
