Jacob Une Larsson opened the scores in the 21st minute as he nodded home a Magnus Eriksson free-kick to beat Hannes Sveijer in the Sirius goal.

Five minutes later, Edward Chilufya sprinted loose on the right-wing and drove into the box before setting up Hampus Finndell who made no mistake, 2-0 in favor of the hosts.

It got from bad to worse for the visitors two minutes later as Eriksson’s long-range effort took an awkward bounce in front of Sveijer beating him for Djurgadens’ third of the match. It was almost 4-0 by the half-hour mark but Edward Chilufya somehow missed from very close range with the goalkeeper already on the floor.

He made up for the mistake minutes later as he got on the end of a beautiful Elliot Käck cross to make it 4-0 before the break.

In the second half Coach, Kim Bergstrand decided to introduce Midfielder Emmanuel Banda in place of Finnish midfielder Rasmus Schüller. Sirius pulled one back in the 72nd minute through Christian Kouakou but Banda restored Djurgadens four-goal  cushion three minutes later as he headed in Eriksson’s beauty of a cross, 5-1 the match ended.

    @boy. The trueth has been said. We have players abroad who are not considered for national duty apperent to no any satisfactory reason. Kenneth kalunga.. aime mabika.. shemmy mahembe.. sunzu.. frank musonda.. frank musonda.. all these players should called up for national duty.. zambia have over 50 professionals who are ready and willing to represent their country but they are not given the opportunity. Last time the coach said we do not call professionals to sit on bench. This is silly excuse. They should bring all professionals to fight for jerseys .. you do not select a team on phone. The level of competition at training is very low. Chipante pante boys dominates the national team. Thats why we were losing to useless teams. The current team is not very intimidating on paper and on the pitch. We are expecting something better. New coach new results
