Exciting Nigerian youngster Amoo’s excellent performance rewarded in Sweden

The former Nigerian youth international delivered another brilliant performance at the weekend to inspire his Swedish side to victory at the weekend

Akinkunmi Amoo has been rewarded for his excellent showing for Hammarby in their 3-2 triumph over Orebro at the Tele2 Arena.

The 19-year-old dazzler was handed the man-of-the-match award after helping Milos Milojevic’s side twice come from behind to bag their 13th league win of the campaign.

The visitors twice led courtesy of a Paulsen own-goal late in the first half and Besara’s 64th-minute strike. But Simon Sandberg equalised for the home side before Amoo made it 2-2 in the 66th for his ninth goal in 26 league games and his second in his last four Allsvenskan matches.

Aside from his goal, the former Golden Eaglets’ star was as enterprising as ever, completing 86% of his 28 passes while notching two key passes, which his teammates failed to convert to assists.

Gustav Ludwigson found the back of the net for the winner in the 85th, warming the hearts of most among the 22,013 spectators in the November cold in Stockholm.

Despite the equally fantastic contributions of Sandberg and Ludwigson, Amoo was picked as the winner of the official Craft best player award for the encounter.
