Akpoborie chides Maja on concentration, focus
Jonathan Akpoborie, a former Nigeria international, has urged Fulham striker, Josh Maja, not to be carried away with the excitement of netting a brace on his Premier League debut against Everton.
The Nigerian international opened his goals account when he slid in to turn home Ola Aina’s cross from close range for the opening goal before tapping in after Reed’s shot had hit the woodwork for his second goal.
Akpoborie said the former Wolfsburg forward should keep his head cool and take his game as they come.
“It is too early to start singing the praises of Fulham striker, Josh Maja just because he scored a brace against Everton.
“No doubt, he deserves to be commended for his brilliant performance but you should understand that this is just his first game.
“I love his positioning each time Fulham are attacking their opponent. He’s a player that I believe will get better with every game that comes.
“For me, I think it is a plus for the Super Eagles with just a few weeks to 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Benin and Lesotho respectively”.
