Romain Gall scores ninth goal of Swedish Allsvenskan season

Romain Gall scored one goal and added an assist as Swedish champion Malmo beat Kalmar, 4-0, for its eighth straight win in the Allsvenskan and 12th game in a row without a defeat. The goal gives nine in the Allsvenskan -- tied for sixth in scoring -- in 19 games.

Malmo sits fourth in the Allsvenskan with 43 points, only one point behind Hammarby and two points behind Norrkoping in second place. AIK leads with 51 points with eight games to play.

Malmo has won all six league games Gall has played.  Malmo's 2-0 loss at Genk on Thursday in the Europa League was its first loss since the World Cup break in June.

Gall parlayed a strong start to the Swedish season at GIF Sundsvall into a move to Malmo for a reported transfer fee of more than 5 million kronor ($560,000).

The 23-year old Gall, who was born and raised in France, had six goals in Sundsvall's first 13 league games in addition to two goals in three cup games this year. He was the co-leading scorer in 2015 Concacaf qualifying but didn't make the USA's final Under-20 World Cup roster.
