Two African hat-tricks in Swedish Cup

Nigerian striker Jordan Kadiri scored three goals for Ostersund

Nigerian Jordan Kadiri and Ghanaian Mamudo Moro scored three goals apiece for their clubs in the second round of the Swedish Cup last weekend.

Kadiri, who now tops the scorers’ chart with four goals after two rounds, grabbed a hat-trick as Ostersund walloped Gais 4-0.

The Nigerian struck twice in the first half before adding a third after 52 minutes, in the second half.

Moro ran riot in early as Mjallby devoured Dalkurd 5-0. He scored three goals in 13 minutes in the first half with the opener coming after just eight minutes.

Ivorian Christian Kouakou and Liberian international Seth Kanteh Hellberg grabbed a goal each as their club Brage drew 3-3 with Orebro while Nigerian forward Onyedikachuwu Nnamani scored in the 11th minute in Eskilstuna’s 6-1 bashing of Syrianska.

Ivorian midfielder Abdul Razak unfortunately scored an own to see Orgryte go down 1-0 to AIK.
