Moses Simon has said he hopes to get his shooting boots firing again at the U20 World Cup after he last scored for Belgian champions Gent on April 5.
Simon and Granada striker Isaac Success were the last players to join the rest of the Nigeria squad for the World Cup in New Plymouth Wednesday evening.
“Yes, the last time I scored was in April against Kortrijk, but the goals have not dried up. I believe I will be backing scoring again, hopefully at this World Cup,” he said on arrival in the team’s Quality Hotel.
Moses Simon, a January transfer signing, netted seven goals as Gent won a first-ever Belgian league championship in 115 years.
He said he is delighted with the reception he got from the rest of the squad in New Plymouth.
“It really feels good as I was accepted by the boys immediately on arrival,” said the left winger, who also featured at the 2013 tournament in Turkey.
“I believe we will give Nigeria something good here.”
