Tino Kadewere is beginning to make his mark in Sweden. The forward scored twice for his Djurgaden side. The Team scored 6-0 against Degerfors in the Svenska Cup in Stockholm on Monday night.
The 22-year-old struck twice in four minutes as Djurgaden powered to a comfortable victory over a side in the league just below the Swedish top-flight. The Svenska Cup is the main knockout football tournament in Sweden. Winners get a ticket to represent the country in the UEFA Europa League.
Ninety eight teams compete in the competition with all clubs from the top-flight league, the Allsvenskan, 16 teams from the second-tier Superettan and 68 clubs from the lower leagues having a crack at the tournament.
Kadewere has been easing into the Swedish game and arrived at Djurgaden under pressure to fill the big shoes left by another Zimbabwean forward Nyasha Mushekwi, who transformed himself into a darling of the fans during his goal-laden stay at the club.
Mushekwi is now in China preparing for the start of the Chinese Super League. Kadewere is completely the opposite of Mushekwi in that while the latter is someone who uses his big frame and pace to create opportunities, the former is a lanky individual who uses his technique.
