The FC Groningen of Holland midfielder stated as much on Monday morning, during a live telephone interview with Sports Radio 88.9 Brila FM, but said sheer determination to justify Coach Shaibu Amodu’s confidence spurred him towards an above fair performance.
“What I was thinking was that I have to prove a point to the coaching crew, because I have been doing that with my club.
“I was happy for them giving me the chance. I was determined to go there and do my best, make myself proud and to help the team as well.
“To the glory of God, I did my best and, more importantly, I am happy for the victory which God gave us,” said the former FC Myddtilland of Denmark dark-skinned midfielder.
