Sunshine Stars striker Israel Abia has reiterated his desire to score at least 23 goals at the end of 2019/20 NPFL season.
Mfon Udoh holds the record for the highest number of goals scored in a football season after netting 23 goals in the 2013/2014 NPFL season during his days at Enyimba.
Abia who has netted seven goals thus far, said after his side’s 1-1 draw with Dakkada FC on Sunday,that he could go all the way to creating another goals record in the League.
“I don’t want to sound boastful. But I believe I can make it happen with the way I am playing and the cooperation from my teammates.”
“There is no nothing wrong to aspire and that is the challenge I have given myself this season.”
“It is true that I have scored seven goals so far in the season, I will surely get more because I had a good preparation before the season started.”
“I don’t usually count goals as I score. What I do is to play well in every match and if I play well, I know the goals will surely come.”
“Everything will work well for me and I’m ready for the challenge that I have given myself,” Abia said.
