Gall scores game winner as Malmo wins in Cup play


Romain Gall made the most of a start on Sunday in the Svenska Cupen.

The 24-year-old scored his first goal of 2019 which proved to be the game-winner as Malmo edged Degerfors IF 3-2 at Swedbank Stadion. He also assisted on Malmo’s opening goal in the 40th minute, put away by Marcus Antonsson.

After a dashing run into the box, Gall played a cross into the center of the box which Antonsson slotted in to put Malmo ahead 1-0.

Degerfors would equalize twice in the match but Gall would help Malmo take the lead for good. Gall’s long-range strike in the 81st minute settled the match in Malmo’s favor and helped them bounce back from a Europa League loss midweek.

Malmo returns to Europa League play on Thursday, looking to flip a 2-1 aggregate at Chelsea in London. Following that, Gall and Co. take on Osters IF in second group stage match in the Svenska Cupen.



    • Well reports were in the last camp under Sarachan he was one of the better players in camp, but picked up an injury so his integration into the team was short lived. Since we are lacking in creative, goal scoring types of players you’d have to think he’d be included in the March roster, but as a former player under Berhalter in Columbus there is no telling what Greg’s impression of him is to date!

    • He was a pedigreed U20 a couple classes before this current batch, but he struggled to break in for Columbus and rebooted abroad. I think you need to see 90 minute games — and a few in a row really — to see if you can truly contribute to the USMNT, but he hummed a ball over the bar when he saw the field. Kind of ironic to now be back under Berhalter at the international level, I wonder if that hurts or helps. [Personally based on how Lletget and he did I wasn’t sure the coach was tuned into the right people.]
