My goals against Plateau Utd will motivate me – Asiegbu

Tuesday, 20 June 2017


Abia Warriors Football Club of Umuahia mercurial mid-fielder, Shedrack Asiegbu says his two goals against league leaders, Plateau United in a week 25 Nigeria professional Football League at the weekend will motivate him to do more for the club.

Asiegbu, who had not scored for Abia Warriors this season, before his brace last weekend, broke the ice at the Umuahia Township Stadium with what might eventually turn out to be a strong contender for the goal of the season in the 12th minute when he received a pass from around the centre circle, chested the ball to his knee level and released a thunderous left-footed shot which settled at the bottom left corner of the net as Plateau United goalkeeper, Dele Ajiboye stood transfixed.

After Hamza Owolabi equalized for the league leaders in the 80th minute, Asiegbu had the responsibility of ensuring victory for the Warriors when he held his nerves to beat Ajiboye from the spot with the last kick of the game.

Asiegbu told that he was happy to grab the headlines and commended the Technical Crew led by Abdullahi Biffo for the confidence they reposed in him even when the goals refused to come his way.

“The Coaches believe in me and they have been advising me on how to improve my game. I was very happy when I scored the goals. I dedicate the goals to God my team mates and the entire team”, he further stated.

In his comments, Biffo described the Umuopara Umuahia-born Asiegbu as “a young man with a lion’s heart” insisting that the coaches believe in him because of his work rate and team spirit, expressing confidence that his performance against Plateau United will ginger him into more action.
