Loan round-up: Hugill nets on QPR debut

Jordan Hugill scores against Stoke


The English Football League season began with a bang this weekend, with Jordan Hugill making the perfect start to life at Queens Park Rangers, scoring on his debut as the R's recorded a 2-1 victory at Stoke City.

Hugill opened the scoring, knocking into an empty net after Bright Osayi-Samuel beat Jack Butland to a ball in the right channel and served up an unmissable chance.

Eberechi Eze doubled the visitors' lead, meaning Sam Clucas' 78th minute response was nothing more than a consolation.

Meanwhile, in Sweden, Sead Haksabanovic was the hero as IFK Norrkoping secured their place in the UEFA Europa League third qualifying round last midweek, with Haksabanovic scoring the only goal in their 1-0 second leg success against FK Leipaja of Latvia.

After their 3-0 aggregate success, Norrkoping will next take on Hapoel Be'er Sheva of Israel.
