Faroese striker Edmundsson makes glorious comeback from knee injury

Faroese striker Jóan Símun Edmundsson made his official comeback from injury by playing 93 minutes for Bundesliga 2 side Arminia Bielefeld on Wednesday night.

The comeback went well as Edmundsson scored the second goal of the night for Arminia Bielefeld who battled back from 3-1 down at half-time to beat Dynamo Dresden away from home.

Julian Börner’s 78th-minute winner sealed a memorable 4-3 victory for Arminia Bielefeld.

Edmundsson made it 2-3 shortly after the interval, and Fabian Klos equalized from the penalty spot in the 69th minute. Edmundsson was withdrawn after 93 minutes.

Edmundsson injured his knee in a Bundesliga 2 game against FC Ingolstadt 04 last November.

He, thus, pulled out of the Nations League games with Azerbaijan and Malta. The Faroe Islands were beaten 2-0 by Azerbaijan and drew 1-1 with Malta.

Arminia Bielefeld currently sit in 14th place in the Bundesliga 2, with 21 points from 19 games.
