The striker, in an exclusive interview with the club’s media, hinted that he has been practicing the techniques in training sessions and wasn’t surprised the ball went in against

 

“The way I played that corner kick against Adamawa United was such that, I wrapped my leg around the ball and applied a lot of spin on the ball in such a way that it needed the slightest of touches to get into the net, and if nobody touches the ball, it would still get into the net or the goalkeeper would save it.” He said

 

“As a striker, I always try to play the ball into the back of the net from different positions in the field of play. I do a lot of those tricky skills in training and in match situations but I don’t always get it right, and that does not mean that I will stop trying out new skills.
