Philadelphians Abroad

Philadelphians Abroad: All Scandinavia Edition

With leagues across Scandinavia rounding out their regular seasons, it is put-up or shut-up time for players across northern Europe, and our band of locals are largely in the put-up camp.

Hottest of all in that cold, cold region is Bobby Warshaw of Swedish side Ängelholms FF. On loan from FC Dallas, the Mechanicsburg, PA native had a monster match this weekend against IFK Värnamo. Losing only once in their last nine games (which happened to be the only game in which Warshaw did not take the field after breaking into the team’s lineup), Ängelholms squared off against a Värnamo side fighting to avoid relegation.

Warshaw gave Ängelholms the lead just 14 minutes in, but just two minutes later an equalizer would leave the teams tied at the half. Coming out of the locker rooms on the front foot, Warshaw would again give his side the lead four minutes after thje restart. The demoralized Värnamo side would then give up two more (including an own goal) before Warshaw would put the icing on the cake with an assist for teammate Mikael Dahlgren in the 88th minute. Though Ängelholms would give up a consolation goal in stoppage time, the side would call it a night with an impressive 5-2 win in their back pocket. Warshaw now stands at five goals and one assist in six appearances for Ängelholms.

Down the Swedish soccer pyramid, Philadelphia’s own Anthony Allison also made a mark in his match over the weekend, providing Umeå FC with their only goal as a second half sub in Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Carlstad United NS.

Finally, Marlboro, NJ native Alex DeJohn played his last game of the season with Finnish side Ekenäs IF. Despite ending the season at the top of their division, DeJohn and Ekenäs missed out on promotion to the Finnish first division after a devastating 2-0  playoff loss this Saturday to FC Jazz. Over the course of the season, DeJohn racked up 26 starts, 1 goal, and contributed to 12 of his team’s clean sheets.
