Eagles’ striker, Egbuchulam, joins Swedes club on loan

By Femi Adefioye, Lagos

Nigeria’s forward, Chisom Egbuchulam has joined club BK Hacken in Sweden, on a season-long loan from Enugu Rangers.

At the domestic league, Egbuchulam scored 16 goals and made 11 assists last season to help Rangers win the Nigerian league and claim a Champions League spot.

At the end of the loan deal, Egbuchulam has the option of a three-year permanent move to the 2016 Swedish Cup champions.

“Moving to Europe is a big dream-come-true for me. I thank God for the opportunity and BK Hacken for the platform to play in European football,” Egbuchulam said.

Egbuchulam’s impressive form in the domestic league led to an international call-up from Nigeria’s manager, Gernot Rohr, for the 2018 World Cup qualifier against Zambia in October.
