Late Roony double earns FCK derby win

F.C. Copenhagen beat Brøndby 3-2 in the first Copenhagen derby of the season on Sunday thanks to two late goals from young Roony Bardghji.

In a frenetic game, Brøndby took the lead through Josip Radosevic in the first half, only for Diogo Gonçalves to equalise after the break.

Ohi Omoijuanfo put the hosts back in front with 20 minutes remaining but FCK kicked into gear late on to take all three points.

Roony was there to slot home in front of goal on 84 minutes after a wonderfully-worked moved across the Lions' front line.

The 17-year-old took a bow in front of the BIF fans and moments later was on hand again to celebrate finding the net.

This time it was more of a scramble as Rasmus Flak fed the ball into the box and, after it had bounced around somewhat, Roony popped up to bury the loose back and send the travelling FCK fans wild. He ran to the FCK bench to embrace head coach Jacob Neestrup.

The goal had to be checked for VAR but was eventually given. FCK held on for seven minutes of stoppage time before finally being permitted to celebrate a famous victory.
