“I’ve been very happy, I could not eat. It is a good thing that the goal came on the day I was recalled to the Eagles after a Year,” Agu told brila.net.
“Coincidentally, the last time I played for Nigeria was in November and My Wife’s birth month is also November,” he added.
The 26-year-old who is currently on loan from Turkish side Bursaspor has scored just once this season after six league appearances.
