Assyriska FF 2-4 Linköping City

Ugandan defender Ivan Bukenya was on the score sheet for the second time this season as Linköping City rallied from a goal behind to edge Assyirska FF 4-2 in the Swedish Division One Norra group at Södertalje Football stadium.

Archie Harvey had given Assyriska FF the lead in the 28th minute capitalizing on a defensive lapse but Leon Pachajyan leveled up for Linköping City 6 minutes later.

Ivan Bukenya then rose to the occasion with a thunderbolt strike 2 minutes to the halftime whistle.

The former Proline player chested down a ball from a corner kick and turned with a left footed strike through a forest of defenders to give City the lead.

Come into the second half, Michael Uwezu made it 3-1 before Aly Husein pulled one back for the hosts 6 minutes past the hour mark.

Substitute Illir Terbunja killed off the game finishing off a well orchestrated counter attack inside the four minutes of added time.

Linköping City moved to the 23 point mark with 14 games played whereas Bukenya took his scoring tally to 2 goals in the 12 matches he has featured in.

Bukenya and his teammates will take on Vasteräs SK in their subsequent league fixture at the Linköping Arena on Sunday 8th July 2018.

Elsewhere, another Swedish based Ugandan defender Ronald Mukiibi was on the score sheet for his side Östersunds FK in a 2-2 draw against Danish outfit Vejle Boldkub.
