posted in: News

All Whites winger Logan Rogerson is enjoying a run of good form for his Finnish club FC Haka, scoring a spectacular goal in his side’s latest win.

He opened the scoring for Haka with a blistering shot in the 7th minute against mid-table Oulu.

Hamilton-born Rogers (24) broke down the right, shimmied past two players and struck a screamer of a shot high into the net.

FC Haka won the home game 3-2 to hold on to fourth place in Finland’s Premier League, known as the Veikkausliiga.

Another New Zealander with FC Haka is Wellington-born midfielder Oliver Whyte (22) who joined them this year after spells with Miramar Rangers and Team Wellington.

Like Rogerson, Whyte was a youth player at the Wellington Phoenix.
