Ujah who scored a brace against Leon Balogun's FSV Mainz in a 3-1 away win in the Bundesliga last weekend and the only goal in the 1-0 win in the DFB Pokal against his former club, Cologne midweek added:

"It's a wonderful feeling when you're doing well and you get a call to the national team.

"Thank God for the goals. It wouldn't have been possible to play well and score if not for the support of my team-mates and coaches who encouraged me even when the goals didn't come."
