Emenike: I Must Score Against Tanzania

By James Agberebi:

Super Eagles, Emmanuel Emenike, has stated that he is very determined to end his goal drought with the senior national team by scoring against Tanzania in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Saturday.

Emenike, who recently joined Al Ain from Turkish giants Fenerbahce, last scored for the Eagles when his brace earned the team a 2-1 win against Ethiopia in the World Cup qualifier in October 2013.

In a chat with thenff.com, Emenike expressed his disappointment at not scoring for a long time.

“I look forward to scoring against Tanzania. I am very determined to score again for Nigeria. I’m not happy for the long drought,” Emenike said.

“The match in Tanzania is a must-win for us. I am very happy with our coach (Sunday Oliseh) and the assistants, and the approach to training sessions. Their approach brings out the best from the players.”

The Eagles are on the same three points with Egypt in Group G, but are second due to fewer goals scored.
