Bendel Insurance playmaker Divine Nwachukwu was delighted to get his first NPFL goal for the club.
The Nigeria youth international scored an impressive goal in the twentieth minute of a 1-1 draw against Remo Stars in the Nigeria topflight division on Sunday.
Not only did the goal earn the Benin Arsenal a point, but Nwachukwu was delighted to finally get off the mark for the club.
“Yeah, it is. It’s a lovely feeling,” Nwachukwu told Lodgexpress official website. “I can’t really describe it I’m just over the moon to get my first goal and I think was a decent finish.”
He continued: “I’m really thrilled. We had to really dig deep but we’re happy to take a point from one of the top teams in the group.
“I think we’ve shown that we can really compete against the top teams, we can be really resilient and even though we equalized really early we stayed in the game and kept creating chances and managed to take a point from them.”
