Ghanaian young midfielder Gideon Kodua is in delighted to score for English Premier League side West Ham United reserve side against Manchester City reserve side.
The English-born Ghanaian versatile player found the back of the net for the Hammers as they drew and has expressed his excitement following his contribution to the team’s stalemate.
Callum Marshall was the other goal scorer in West Ham u-21’s 2-2 draw with Manchester City in the Premier League 2.
Kodua explained: “As a front three, sometimes we know when and when not to press. I think in the first half we got it a bit wrong but at the break, we spoke about it and got back to basics about who was going to press which player.
“They kept giving us the ball and it led to the second goal. It’s one of my favourite goals because it is such an easy chance.
“It was a good movement to create the chance. A good cross from Cal and a great tackle from George. It’s another good combination for the goal.
“We can take a lot of positives from the game; especially how calm we were playing out from the back. And now it is about trusting each other to keep doing that.”
Although leaving City with a point is good, Kodua was sure that the Hammers did enough to against the defending champions.
“We left with something,” he added, “but the lads knew in the changing room we could have got more.
“Everyone was a bit frustrated and a bit down because we were really good in the second half, and we had enough chances to win the game.”
