Ekigho Ehiosun has scored two goals in the ongoing WAFU Cup and soccer pundits who watched him play at the MKO Abiola Stadium, Abeokuta, Ogun State, were quick to say that the Warri Wolves star has a promising future. He spoke with P.M. Sports about his performance and other issues
Congratulations for reaching the semi final stage, how would you rate your performance in the two matches you played so far?
Let me first thank God for our qualification. We also want to thank Nigerians who have been supporting us since the competition started. On my performance, I think Iâ€™m doing my best to play good football.
How do you feel scoring two goals in the two matches?
Scoring two goals in the competition is what makes me a good striker. The duty of a striker is to score in a match and this, I did. I always like to score any time I play for the Eagles.
Can we say this is your best performance so far?
My best is yet to come. I am just coming up. Nigerians have not seen my best yet. I am ready to bang in more goals in all matches I play for the Eagles.
Are you not under pressure when you are playing for Nigeria and you donâ€™t score?
I am not under pressure, but I can say that if I donâ€™t score in a match, I donâ€™t really feel comfortable. I wasnâ€™t quite comfortable when they gave me the Man of the Match award against Liberia in Benin during the Olympic qualifiers as I did not score a goal.
Nigeria is likely to meet Ghana or Togo in the semi final, how are you looking foward to the match?
It is going to be another great match the Eagles will be looking forward to as we want to play in the final. Iâ€™ll give my best in all the remaining matches so that we can defend the title again.
You played under Augustine Eguavon and Samson Siasia, how would you compare both coaches?
Both coaches have different approaches to games. I must confess to you that I really like the tactics of both of them. Itâ€™s hard for me to compare the two apart from tactical methods they used, but Iâ€™m glad to have played under both coaches.
What is your next plan after WAFU Cup?
Donâ€™t forget that I am still a Warri Wolves player, but there are many offers from England, Turkey, Israel and even African countries. I want to take my time before I sign any contract, but I wonâ€™t disclose the clubs now until everything is finalised.
