The Nigerian was on target as her side maintained their dominance in the Swedish top-flight

Anam Imo scored as she helped Rosengard to a 3-0 triumph over Djurgarden in a Swedish Damallsvenskan contest at the Stockholms Olympic Stadium on Monday.

Before the encounter, the Nigeria international had opened her Swedish top-flight goal account in her side's 2-1 win over Pitea on May 15.

The hosts were aiming to bounce back to winning ways but started on the back foot after Imo gave the visitors the lead a minute from half-time.

In the second half, Lisa Karlseng Utland, who came one as a substitute, scored twice to wrap up the victory for Jonas Eidevall's side.

The 18-year-old Imo, who was in action for the duration of the match, has now scored two goals in seven outings for Rosengard since her arrival in April.
