I dropped the ball last spring when late-season Litex Lovech acquisition Bjørn Maars Johnsen scored six goals in the Bulgaria top flight's championship hex to help them grab a Europa League spot. Well, the North Carolina product gave me a nice occasion to correct my error. The John Carew-esque striker bagged a stunning lob-on-the-run and a bullet header for his first two Europa League goals, the second of which rallied his side into the aggregate lead with but 32 minutes remaining. Sadly, they did not hold the lead at home and were ousted.
In any event, the goal plays start at 1:43 and 2:22 on this clip.
