Timothy Ouma's Elfsborg overcome Collins Shichenje's AIK 6-1 in Sweden.

Kenyan footballers continue to make waves in European leagues, with Timothy Ouma and Daniel Anyembe showcasing their talents in Sweden and Denmark, respectively.

In Sweden, midfielder Timothy Ouma put in an outstanding performance for IF Elfsborg in their dominant 6-1 victory over AIK at the Boras Arena. Ouma, who has been in fine form recently, notched another assist in the match, setting up Ahmed Qasem for Elfsborg's fifth goal at the hour-mark. 

This marked his second goal contribution in as many matches, following his assist in Elfsborg's previous win over Malmo.

Playing as the right-sided central midfielder in a midfield pivot, Ouma demonstrated his versatility and skill set. Known for his grace, press resistance, and eye for a killer pass from deep, the 19-year-old completed the full 90 minutes for the first time in his career at Elfsborg. 

He also showcased his defensive capabilities, winning three out of four aerial duels and making four tackles and interceptions.

Ouma's stellar performance adds to his growing reputation in the Allsvenskan league, where he has become an integral part of Elfsborg's midfield. 

His consistent displays have earned him a regular spot in the starting lineup, highlighting his potential as a rising star in Swedish football.

Collins Shichenje was not included in the matchday squad for AIK.

Meanwhile, in Denmark, right-back Daniel Anyembe made an appearance for Viborg in their 1-0 loss to Randers at AutoC Park Randers. Anyembe, a Kenyan international, came off the bench in the 68th minute to replace fellow defender Srđan Kuzmić in the relegation-playoff Group B game.

Despite the defeat, Anyembe's involvement reflects his importance to the Viborg squad as they battle to secure their place in the Superliga next season. 

With two games remaining, Viborg will rely on players like Anyembe to deliver strong performances and help the team achieve their objective of avoiding relegation.
