Happy to return with goal. The Fenerbache of Turkey forward has admitted that the Flames of Malawi made the Super Eagles labour for their 2-0 victory on Saturday in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers at the U.J Esuene Stadium, Calabar.
Emenike, who scored the Super Eagles first goal, told SportingLife that the Malawians had a game plan for the match.
“We thank God that we won the match and through to next stage. Malawians were difficult opponents, if not we would have scored more than two goals,” Emenike said.
The CSKA Moscow of Russian striker was also happy to return to the team with a goal after a long spell on the sideline due to the injury he sustained at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.
“I am happy to score again today. I always feel honoured to score for Super Eagles. The goal came at the right. I was at the right position when the ball came, I was expecting in and it came. This is a good boost for us in our fight for the world Cup ticket.”
