Nasarawa Utd midfielder dedicates debut goal to family

03 July 2015, 13:45

Lafia – Nasarawa United midfielder Aminu Abdulkadir has scored his first goal of the season for the Glo Premier League club, and he’s dedicating the goal to his family.  

The attacking midfielder who joined the Solid Miners from Kogi United before the on-going campaign commenced was on target for his team as they won 2-0 in a Nigeria Professional Football League match against FC Taraba on Wednesday.

The youngster told News24 that it was his first league goal of the season and revealed what this ‘special goal’ meant to him.

“I am very, very happy, extremely happy. But what's more important is that we won the game and the goal was the opener,” he said in an exclusive interview with News24.

“It was my first goal of the NPFL season, it's for my family. It’s a special goal for me, first goal in a long time. But what’s more important is that we won the game.”

Aminu also promised to keep on working hard to improve his game.

“The goal wasn't meant to be a statement and I know one goal doesn’t automatically give me game time. Whatever happens from today onwards, I always try to give my best for the team and I'll just take it one game at a time.”

Aminu grabbed a total of ten goals for Kogi United in the 2013/14 Nigeria National League season before he was snapped up by Nasarawa United.
