Orji bags brace as Kanu makes debut in Linkopings win over Nambi's Vaxjo

Ebere Orji was on target twice as Uchenna Kanu made her Damallsvenskan debut outing in style as Linkopings earned a 3-0 opening day triumph against Violah Nambi's Vaxjo on Saturday.

Orji left Umea to join the Swedish outfit in February, while Kanu arrived from Spanish side Sevilla last Sunday and made a cameo appearance as the former bagged a brace in the team's win.

Having defeated Eskilstuna United and Orebro, Linkopings built on their morale-boosting warm-up triumphs and Orji scored the team's first goal of the season to open the lead in the 14th minute.
