Henry Offia’s Brace Seals Comeback Victory for Trelleborg FF

by: Evolve


In an stunning league game on Monday, Trelleborg FF pulled off a remarkable comeback against Helsingborg, thanks to the brilliant performance of Nigerian forward Henry Offia, who scored twice to seal a 3-1 victory in the Swedish Superettan League round 15 clash.

The game kicked off with the home team taking the lead, as Amar Muhsin converted a spot-kick just 23 minutes into the match. Despite trailing behind at halftime, Trelleborg FF showed resilience and determination.

The second half began with a quick response from Trelleborg FF, as Mattias Andersson netted an equalizer just 11 minutes in.

However, the true hero of the match was Henry Offia, whose magic on the field shone brightly in the 65th and 77th minutes, securing both the win and three crucial points for the Magnus Andersson side.

The 23-year-old had been struggling to find form this season, with only three goals in 15 league games for Trelleborg.

However, his exceptional performance in this game brings his total tally to four goals in 18 appearances across all competitions.

The victory was much-needed for Trelleborg FF, who had suffered back-to-back defeats and a draw recently, dampening their spirits. But with this uplifting win, their confidence is sure to soar.

With these three points in the bag, Trelleborg now climbs to the 8th position in the Swedish Superettan league table, amassing a total of 20 points from 15 games. They are 15 points behind the league leaders, Utsiktens BK.

Looking ahead, the Flying Eagles Forward and his teammates will now be gearing up to face Landskrona BolS in their next fixture on Sunday, where they aim to continue their climb up the league table.
