Oduamadi targets Confeds Cup Golden Boot


OduamadiSuper Eagles star, Nnamdi Oduamadi, who scored a hat-trick in Nigeria’s opening game against Tahiti has stated that, he would love to score more goals and eventually emerge the tournament’s highest goal scorer.

Oduamadi scored his goals for the Eagles in the 10th, 25th and 77th minutes against Tahiti on Monday in Belo Horizonte.

The AC Milan loanee, whose nickname is ‘Robinho’ after the Brazil legend with the same name, also became only the second player after Fernando Torres to score a hat-trick at the Confederations Cup.

“I am just happy that we got this victory. I thank God for my hat-trick against Tahiti, it was God’s making,” Oduamadi said.

“I am very happy with the way things are going for me, scoring three goals in a game at such competition was great.

“I have to thank my teammates for providing assists for the goals. I will keep working hard for myself and the team to get more goals.

“I dedicate all the goals to my mother, who has always been there for me. In fact her prayers have been the Midas touch for my career.”

The tournament leading scorer, who also scored the all-important equaliser against Kenya at home in March, also admitted the Eagles were wasteful in front of goal.

“I know we lost of a lot of scoring chances in the game, but I am happy that we have all three points,” said the Varese of Italy left winger.

“We have realised out mistakes because we lost many scoring chances in the game but hopefully we would not be that wasteful in the game against Uruguay.”
