Uchenna Kanu on target as Evelyn Ijeh's Hackens eliminate Linkopings

Uchenna Kanu found the back of the net but Linkopings crashed out of the 2020 Swedish Women's Cup group stage following a disappointing 5-2 defeat to Hackens on Saturday.

Having emerged the heroine in a 1-0 win over Vaxjo, the 23-year-old was given her fourth starting appearance in the rescheduled national tournament but her effort was not enough to save the day.

With a win needed to progress to the semi-final, Linkopings made a poor start to the encounter when Julia Olme opened the scoring for the hosts just three minutes into the tie at Bravida Arena.
