Uchenna Kanu at the double as Linkopings see off Umea

Uchenna Kanu scored a brace to help Linkopings secure a 3-0 victory over Umea in Saturday's Swedish Damallsvenskan game.

The 23-year-old has continued to show what she is capable of since teaming up with Olof Unogard's side this July.

Kanu, who has made 13 league appearances for the Swedish outfit so far, again shone against Umea, inspiring them to victory.

The Nigeria international fired the hosts ahead of the top-flight newcomers with a brilliant finish after 21 minutes into the encounter.

Jasmin Nejati added salt to the injury of the visitors as she mistakenly turned the ball into her own net to gift Linkopings the second goal of the match in the 30th minute.
