Nigeria’s wonder boy Akinkunmi Amoo helps Hammarby win Sweden Cup 1

The former Golden Eaglets star came on in the second half to help Bajen win the Svenska Cupen for the first time in the club’s history

Akinkunmi Amoo was a second half substitute as Hammarby beat Hacken on penalties to win their first Sweden Cup title.

Amoo’s performances had been key to their run to the final, with four goals in previous rounds. Although he did not score in the final, he still played his part.

The 18-year-old came on for Vladimir Rodic in the 59th minute and managed to get into dangerous places but could not find the back of the net.
