West Brom forward Adil Nabi, on loan at Delhi Dynamos, got on the scoresheet for the Indian Super League side, but the visitors were thumped 7-2 by Swedish top flight side BK Hacken at the Bravida Arena in Gothenburg on Thursday.

Former Liverpool star John Arne Riise was the other scorer for the ISL side in the game, as he converted from the spot in the first half. This was the second defeat on the trot for the Delhi Dynamos in their preseason tour of Sweden.

Meanwhile, the franchisee also unveiled their latest signing at the match, with 33-year-old Dutch midfielder Serginho Greene, who featured in the preseason friendly yesterday, added to the squad for the upcoming season of the ISL. The player has been a part of Dutch top-flight sides like Vitesse and Feyenoord.

Greene is known for his versatility, while having plenty of pace as well. Welcoming the player, Brazil legend Roberto Carlos – the marquee manager of Delhi Dynamos this season – said that the player has a willingness to learn.

"He is willing to learn and grow as a player. His speed will help us a lot as a team and I am very happy about his signing." Carlos, who featured in neither of the games for Dynamos in preseason, said in a statement.

The Dutchman started his youth career with well-known Dutch side Ajax, and went on to feature for Netherlands U-16 and U-21 sides. Greene has a total of 185 appearances in the Eredivisie – the Dutch top-flight – as well as six appearances in the Europa League in his career. He doesn't have any senior cap, however.

Delhi Dynamos president Prashant Agarwal said the player made an instant mark for the ISL side after coming on in the second half of the game against Hacken.

"Serginho is a great addition to team. Roberto was convinced that he was the right man to fill the missing position. He also made a great presentation in Braveda arena where he played like a lion," Agarwal said.
