Uzbekistan born Nigerian striker targeted fifteen goals in English Premier League
Nigeria striker Peter Odemwingie has targeted a goal tally of fifteen this season for English Premier League club West Brom.
Odemwingie scored his 11th goal in the league in the 3-2 win over Sunderland at the weekend and has now set his sights on a personal record after equalling the club’s mark set by Robert Earnshaw in the 2004-05 season.
"My target is still to beat my best season of fourteen goals. With six games to go still, it is possible to get to the fifteen mark," Odemwingie said to the BBC.
Even though he is in his first season with the Baggies, Odemwingie, a Uzbekistan-born striker has set himself up for legendary status after equalling Earnshaw’s haul. And his performance this season has generated speculation that Juventus could be after his signature.
West Brom lie in a dangerous position in the league table and Odemwingie hopes he can score more goals to help keep his side in the top flight.
