Uchendu debuts as Orji inspires Linkopings comeback at Vittsjo

Nigeria's Chinaza Uchendu made her debut for Linkopings as compatriot Ebere Orji's effort inspired their 2-1 comeback victory in Sunday's Swedish Damallsvenskan triumph at Vittsjo.

The 27-year-old joined Linkopings in January from Umea where she scored 12 goals to inspire their top-flight return and has since established herself under the watch of Olof Unogard's team.

Orji scored a brace and initiated the third goal as Olof Unogard's team opened their campaign on a winning note with 3-0 triumph over Vaxjo last week as Uchenna Kanu made a cameo debut.

Going into the tie, Vittsjo were desperate to return to winning ways after an opening 1-0 defeat to champions Rosengard last week, while Linkopings sought to maintain their impressive start.
