Ambrose dedicates goal to Nigerians

12 October 2015, 18:50

Brussels - Super Eagles and Celtic of Scotland defender Efe Ambrose says his goal for Nigeria in the 3-0 win over Cameroun in Sunday's friendly is for Nigerians.

Ambrose headed in an Obi Mikel set piece to give Nigeria the lead going into the break and the 26 year old reckons fans of the team deserve to be mentioned after the goal.

"My goal is for the fans, they have been with us through thick and thin, infact their cheers in Belgium during the game were awesome," he told News24.

"We heard them chant our name and sing songs of motivation, it felt like home and that played a part in the way we approached the game."

Back in the team for the first time since the ill-fated attempt to qualify for the defence of their cup of Nations crown, Ambrose who paired Leon Balogun in the central defence praised his partner display.

"Leon made it all look too easy to play with him, He knows when to move, when to make a tackle and when to attack I am yet to see a better tackler, I pray we continue our partnership in the heart of defence."
