FC Copenhagen teenager Mohamed Daramy scores in Europa League debut

Mohamed Daramy scored a goal in his Europa League debut for Copenhagen in their 3-1 victory over Riga FC on Thursday. 

A memorable feat for the 17-year-old, Goal reported that he came off the bench in the 79th-minute replacing Rasmus Falk and went on to score the third goal in the 90th minute -  a moment he will cherish for a long time. 

Viktor Fischer opened the scoring line for the Danish team at the 18th minute through Pierre Bengtsson’s assist, but the excitement didn't last long when Vladimirs Kamess equalised for his side. 

Pieros Sotiriou’s 62nd-minute penalty placed Stale Solbakken’s side ahead before Daramy’s cracker ended the Latvian's hopes of making a comeback. 

Riga of Latvia will host Copenhagen at Skonto Stadium in the return leg on August 29 when they aim for a spot in the Europa League group stages. 

Daramy kickstarted his youth career at Hvidovre IF before he was snatched up by Copenhagen for his exploits and handed his first professional contract in April 2019.

The teenage playmaker will be expected to be the difference when his side takes on Nordsjælland in a Superliga fixture on Sunday, August 25.
