AIK's 16 year old Eritrean-Swede Alexander Isaac strikes again with a beautiful header as he struck a cross into the back of the net for his third goal of the young Allsvenskan (Swedish Premier league)season. See video highlights below.
Alexander who has been the talk of international soccer as he made history was recently being looked at by top teams in the British premier League as well as other top European teams. During the game vs Gefle IF which was played on Monday May 23rd, 2016, Alexander was injured slightly and according to AIK officials and medics the injury is not too serious. The team doctors have confirmed that he should be back to training within a day or two. It is to be noted that Alexander has played in nine games and has scored three goals so far.
Meanwhile, we have learned that legend and star of the Swedish team AIK Henok Goitom is back and training with AIK from Spain where he spent the past two months. There is nothing concrete to indicate that he is a part of the team but he has been training with AIK and the possibility of him playing another year for AIK is there. We shall wait and see what happens.
Eri-International sports has also learned that during a recent Eritrean sports event in Sweden, Alexander Isak was kind enough to participate and award trophy prizes to participants. One of the balls he scored in his debut with all of AIK's team member signatures was also auctioned off as a charity. Happy 25th year independence day week to all Eritreans and hoping that Alexander, Henok and the many others can serve as an inspiration to future Eritrean, African, and all young athletes. It is clear that the more humble and conscious you are the better a person and athlete or whatever else you become.
Congratulations and hope this young man will help lead the flock of soccer stars that will make headlines everywhere and represent their Eritrean flag.
