Bursa, Turkey – In a dazzling display of skill and determination, Super Eagles and Bursaspor midfielder Mikel Ndubuisi Agu made a profound impact on Sunday, securing a 4-0 triumph against Antalyaspor in the Super Lig. Agu’s exceptional performance, marked by a goal in the 37th minute, not only showcased his prowess on the field but also served as a testament to his gratitude towards a higher power.
Speaking exclusively to completesportsnigeria.com from Turkey, Agu revealed, “I always put God first in everything, so the goal is dedicated to God and my wife and son too. I’m happy to be playing regularly and also glad that the team is doing well. We want to keep pushing until the end of the season and hopefully, we can get to qualify for the Europa League.”
This marks Agu’s second goal of the season, following his earlier success against Osmanlispor. The 24-year-old midfielder, on loan from the prestigious FC Porto until the season’s conclusion, expressed his elation at the team’s performance, contributing to their ascent to the seventh position on the league table, a mere point away from the coveted Europa League spot.
Detailing the mechanics of his pivotal goal, Agu elucidated, “We were on the attack and got a corner kick from one of our attacking runs. I moved into the penalty box and picked a good spot for myself to stay. The ball was floated in by my teammate, and I jumped to nod it into the net.”
Agu also lauded Bursaspor’s home ground prowess at the Bursa Büyükşehir Belediye Stadyumu, where they have secured four out of five victories this season. “Yeah, we are strong at home, and I think that’s a good quality to have. It is always important to win your home games and aim for points on the road. That’s what we always do in each game we play home or away, and so far, I think it’s paying off for us,” he remarked.
In a promising turn of events, Bursaspor, currently in the fifth round of the Turkish Cup, remains poised to make a compelling push for Europa League qualification as the season progresses.
