Waris delighted with first goal

Abdul Majeed Waris has described his first international goal as a ‘great feeling’ after starring in Ghana’s 4-0 win over Sudan in a 2014 World Cup qualifier.

The Black Stars striker, who scored in the 79th minute to make it 3-0 and bring up his first international goal, expressed his delight at the result and his own personal performance.

“It [first goal for country] is a great feeling and the victory is good success for the nation,” Waris said after the game at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday.

The win helped the Black Stars close the gap at the top in Group D, where they are now one point behind with three more matches to go in the second round stage of qualifying.

“Everybody knows how important it is for Ghana to qualify for the World Cup. We will keep on working hard and do our best for the nation.”

Waris played alongside Asamoah Gyan, who opened the scoring in the first half and the Spartak Moscow player has hailed his partnership with the Ghana captain.

“He [Gyan] is a great partner and we talk to each other. Everybody will like to play with him and take part in that,” he said.
