The match-winner for Nigeria in their 1-0 win over the Squirrels of Benin Republic at the Stade Charles de Gaulle, Paul Onuachu has revealed his plans for the Super Eagles going forward.
The Genk striker revealed that he has worked hard to be here and was happy to have scored the only goal in the encounter, late on in the match. He then added that he is willing to score more for his country if he is given more opportunities.
In an interview with THE PUNCH, Onuachu said: “I hope to get another chance to prove my worth again. I’m happy to have scored the match-winner for the team in Cotonou. I’ve worked very hard to get here. It’s like a long road but I’m very happy to be here and to get the opportunity and the goal.”
He added: “I want to do more like I have been doing with my club (Genk) this season. It has always been my dream to score for Nigeria in games and I want to do that regularly when I get an invitation to represent my fatherland.
The 26-year-old striker has been heavily criticized by a section of fans in Nigeria, but his form for Genk in the Belgian league can not be overlooked, and his goal for the Super Eagles against Benin Republic is a reminder of what he can offer.
Do you think Paul Onuachu will succeed with Nigeria?
