FC Helsingør received Skive IK at Helsingør Stadion in the seventh matchweek of 2020-21 First Division – the second tier of Danish football. And this match was very special for two young players from New Zealand: Callum McCowatt and Elijah Just.
Just was in Helsingør’s starting eleven for the seventh straigh game while McCowatt started the game on the bench. Jonas Henriksen opened the scoreboard for Helsingør in the third minute of the game and the scoreboard remained 1-0 for the rest of the first half.
The most awaited moment by the New Zealanders took place at the 70th minute when McCowatt came from the bench to make his official debut for Helsingør. The 21-year-old forward replaced Teddy Bergqvist.
This game became even more special for the Oceanian country when Elijah Just found the net in the 84th to extend Helsingør’s lead. With three goals scored in the current season, Just is the second-highest scorer in the team, behind striker Jeppe Kjaer. Skive’s goal was netted by Oliver Haurits in the 88th minute. At the final whistle, the score was 2-1 in favour of the hosts.
