Manu Garba: Expect more from Godwin Saviour

04 June 2015, 18:38

New Plymouth - Nigeria coach Manu Garba has warned that there is more to come from striker Godwin Saviour after his heroics in the 2-0 victory against North Korea at the FIFA U20 World Cup.

The Nigerians grabbed their first win at the tournament in New Zealand courtesy of a brace from the aptly named Saviour.

The 18-year-old Saviour found the back of the net in the 47th and 50th minute for the Flying Eagles after a goalless first-half at the Stadium Taranaki in Group E.

But Garba said the striker from Nigeria National League side Plateau United is even better than what the supporters saw on the day and told them to expect more from the youngster.

"He did well during our training tour of Germany, but I tell you he was not at his best even today," Garba told africanfootball.com.

"He was on the squad when we won the FIFA U17 World Cup two years ago and I know he can do far more.

"He shoots very well with both legs, has the energy to also cover up when the attack has broken down. I am very happy for him to have scored two goals, that can only boost his confidence to do more."
