Superkid, Emmanuel Jonas was delighted to prove Heartland’s matchwinner for victory over Niger Tornadoes on Saturday.
Jonas says his screamer at Dan Anyiam Stadium is the best he’s scored in the Nigeria Professional Football League.
His wonder goal helped Heartland to defeat Niger Tornadoes 1-0 in their matchday 17 fixture on Saturday to rise up to 15th on the log.
The forward has since described his 11 minutes cracker – a first-time strike from distance – as his best ever goal in the Nigeria Professional Football League.
“I think yes,” he told Lodgexpress.com when quizzed during his post-game interview if it was his best goal so far in the league.
“I was concentrating on my first touch but as soon as it sat up the way it did it really needed a hitting, and I’m glad I followed my instincts and took the shot which flew right into the back of the net.
“It was important as well. We needed to win. It was very important. We’re now off relegation zone and we need to enjoy this moment.”
