–Cologne’s Player Of The Month, Anthony Ujah Wary Of Sudan Threat
Cologne striker Anthony Ujah has analyzed the upcoming African Cup of Nations qualifying fixtures against Sudan, and did not hesitate to remind his national team colleagues that the East Africans will put up a fight.
Having lost to South Africa and Congo, Sudan will kiss goodbye to their dream of making a ninth appearance at the showpiece event in CAF’s football calender should they lose both games against Nigeria.
‘’Sudan can’t be underrated because every team is dangerous, as the Super Eagles saw against Congo. But I’m sure the team will be well prepared for both games as we pray for a better outing for the team,’’ said Anthony Ujah to SL10.ng.
Regarding winning the Player of the Month Award for August, the Cologne number 9 has pointed out that he deserved the accolade after netting three goals in all competitions during the period.
‘’The month of August was a good month for me as I scored twice in the Pokal Cup, and also against Stuttgart in the Bundesliga.
‘’It’s not all about scoring; I fought and helped my team in many offensive and defensive duties. I’m dedicating the award to God Almighty and to my teammates,’’ Anthony Ujah added.
The 23-year-old had won the Player of the Month Award twice, before he was recognized again by the fans on Tuesday.
Anthony Ujah has not been called up to the national team for the past fifteen months, with his last game for the African champions coming against Tahiti at the FIFA Confederations Cup.
