In the last game before the summer break, Dalkurd visited Malmö to play against the regnant Swedish champions. It was also a game between the sports directors of the both teams, who were coaching respective team in expectation of new coaches. Malmö almost scored in third minute when Carlos Strandberg came free, but Sixten Mohlin saved the shot from close range.
Malmö were active and were attacking on the right side. Wing back Eric Larsson found Strandberg with a low cross, but the forward put the ball over the bar. Instead of a Malmö goal, Dalkurd broke the deadlock in the end of the first half. Ahmed Awad picked up the ball, after Simon Strand lost it just outside Malmö’s penalty area. Awad flicked the ball to his left and placed the ball in the bottom left corner to make it 1-0 to Dalkurd.
Malkolm Moënza almost doubled the lead, just after the half time break. His finish from a narrow angle caused some problems for the goalkeeper, who however saved the shot. Malmö equalized short after. Bonke Innocent recovered the ball on Dalkurd’s side of the pitch and passed it to Strandberg, whose heavy finish found it’s way into the net. Later, Malmö had two great chances to take the lead. First Strandberg’s header from close range on a Larsson cross went wide. And short after it was Markus Rosenberg who missed a volley shot, from a similar position as Strandberg.
In the last minutes, Mohamed Buya Turay passed Franz Brorsson on the left side of the penalty area, but the defender came back to poke away the ball, just before the finish from Buya Turay. There were no more goals in the game, which ended 1-1. Now a 1,5 month long break for the World Cup awaits in Allsvenskan, before Dalkurd will play at home against IF Brommapojkarna July 7.
