Former Super Eagles forward Emmanuel Emenike says winning the African cup of Nations with Nigeria remains one of the greatest moments in his career.
Emenike was an integral part of the Super Eagles squad that won the 2013 African cup of Nations in South Africa under the tutelage of the late Stephen Keshi.
The forward was the arrowhead of the team, scoring four goals to lead Nigeria to her third African title.
Emenike who is currently unattached told brila.net he will forever cherish winning both the title and top scorer award.
“Being the top scorer is good and great, which wasn’t what I had in mind before the competition.”
“What we had in our head was to win the trophy, but winning the top scorer award and the trophy made me happy and they are part of the best moments of my life,” he told brila.net.
Emenike wasn’t included in the final against Burkina Faso, due to a thigh injury, but his performance in order games was enough to earn him a place in the team of the tournament.
Emenike scored 9 goals for the Super Eagles from 37 caps, before his retirement from the national team back in 2016.
