Dream Team striker Ajayi shelves personal glory

27 November 2015, 17:56

Lagos - Striker Ajayi Junior says personal glory must take a back seat for the Nigeria U23 team to triumph in the 2015 CAF U23 Nations Championship which is due to take place in Senegal.

The dangerous pointman has raked in four goals in six matches in the Tunisian top-flight for CS Sfaxien and appears to have hit his top form.

Sfaxien are in contention to challenge for titles on all fronts including the Tunisian Ligue One and FA Cup.

With Dream Team VI fans expecting him to replicate his club form at the national team when the U23 tourney gets underway this weekend, Ajayi says he is more concerned about the collective target of the team than his personal glory.

“It’s not about me at all. We want to qualify for Rio Olympic Games and that for me is our focus,” he said

“Scoring goals will be an added bonus. But the collective good of the team is of paramount interest to me.

“We will pick three maximum points in our opening group match against Mali on Sunday and hopefully look to build on that.”
