Over in the Allsvenskan, Hammarby brought a dismal run of results to a comprehensive halt on Monday evening with a 3-0 routing of Gothenborg.
The third and final goal was scored by a player instantly familiar with Football/Championship Manager stalwarts of the 2000/01 and 2001/02 vintage.
That player was the great Kennedy Bakircioglu, who emerged from the bench to clang home a delightful 25-yard freekick as the game moved into its latter stages.
Not only did he dispatch a dead-ball with trademark precision, the 37-year-old also celebrated by swigging from a beer hurled in his direction by an accomplice in the terraces.
Hell of a goal, hell of a catch.
There’s little wonder Kennedy is a bona fide ultralegend, both at Hammarby and in FM circles.
