Nigerian League highest goal scorer eyes Super Eagles

Gombe United FC

Adamu wants to end the season as the highest goal scorer in the league.

Gombe United striker, Adamu Mohammed, has expressed his desire to play for the Super Eagles, saying he would be glad to hear from Coach Stephen Keshi.

Adamu currently has eight goals and is at present the highest goal scorer in the 16-week-old Nigerian Premier League.

Speaking to PREMIUM TIMES, the 22-year-old striker said “it is the dream of every player to play for his country, myself included.

“Stephen Keshi is doing a great job in the Super Eagles and I would love to be part of the team, I also will not mind if I get a call up from him. God will do it for me.”

Adamu also said he is determined to maintain his goal-scoring streak till the end of the 2013/2014 league season,

“I don’t have a goal target for myself this season, but I am praying to Allah to help me become the only player with the highest goals this season. I want to break records,” he said.

“I love scoring goals for my team, Gombe United. It is not that easy and my own secret to goal scoring is extra training and God. After the normal team training routine, I go aside for my own extra training every day. The private sessions helps me a lot as I watch videos of goals scored after that I pray to Allah”.

The forward also said neither he nor Gombe United is keen on winning the league this season.

“I have an eye on the continental ticket and as an individual and team that’s our target; we are not so keen about the league title,” he said.

Gombe United, coached by Maurice Cooreman, sits on the 18th spot on the league table.
