Former Barcelona B player Godswill Ekpolo capped his BK Häcken debut with a man-of-the-match display, against Örebo SK on Sunday.
The defender, who signed for the Swedish club from English third-tier side, Fleetwood Town, impressed on Sunday, and was voted man of the match by the Wasps’ fans.
Alexander Faltsetas had fired Hacken ahead on 63 minutes, only for compatriot Kennedy Igboananike to force an equaliser, with a quarter of an hour left to play.
Igboananike’s Orebo SK featured three Nigerians in the Allsvenskan matchday 15 tie — with Michael Omoh starting in attack alongside Igboananike, while Isaac Boye came on in the second half.
Born in Benin City, Ekpolo, 23, plays primarily as a right-back•
