Daniel Sundgren struck 16 minutes from time as Shamrock Rovers fell to a home defeat against AIK in their Europa League first qualiftying round first leg tie in Tallaght Stadium.

There had been little to choose between the teams for the majority of the game, with Rovers slightly on top in the first half and the visitors edging the second, before the wing-back struck.

AIK captain Henok Goitom linked up with his strike partner Tarik Elyounoussi, whose first-time pass found Sundgren, whose run inside hadn't been tracked by Sam Bone.

The wide man was left one-on-one with Gavin Bazunu and tucked his shot into the far corner – the first time the 16-year-old has conceded a goal in senior football.
