Owerri City School's Iwuajoku Obinna is excited to have powered his side to their first victory at the ongoing national finals of the Copa Coca-Cola U15 championship at the Eva Adelaja Girls Secondary Grammar school on Tuesday afternoon.

A lone striker from the teenage winger handed the Imo boys their first maximum points over Government Junior Secondary School, Kano after kicking off their campaign for the top prize on a shaky note on Monday afternoon at the CMS Grammar School, Lagos.

And Iwuajoku is counting on his form that helped him secured the only goal in Tuesday's game to score more goals in the tourney and help his team go all the way to claim the 2017 edition of the U15 competition.

"I felt so happy scoring my team's only goal in our game today," Iwuajoku told Goal.

"After scoring the goal, we were instructed to defend it even if we won't score again in the game and that was why I had to join the defenders to ensure we emerge victorious after the game.
