Emenike: More goals to come


/ by Imhons Erons
The Nigerian striker marked his first start for his new Club with a double as West Ham United slammed five goals past Blackburn Rovers at the Ewood Park and he has expressed his readiness to continue putting in such match-winning performances.
Emmanuel Emenike is ready to build on his two-goal display at Blackburn Rovers and fire West Ham United to more success over the closing three months of the season.
Fellow Nigerian Victor Moses scored the opener to level proceedings before a sumptuous Emenike brace sandwiched between a Dimitri Payet double helped the Hammers to a 5-1 victory and passage to the quarter-final stage of the Emirates Cup.
Emenike, who arrived on loan from Turkish side Fenerbahce in January, was delighted with the win. He said: “It’s a really special one for me that I played on Sunday and scored in the FA Cup. “I think we are good enough to go all the way. We work hard for each other and we have good players. “I just want to say a big thank you to the fans for their support. “Last week was a tough week for me, because I missed a chance to give us three points, but thankfully I made up for it on Sunday and made the fans happy.” Emenike might have had a hat-trick, had he not struck the post from close in late on, but he was delighted with the double. He added: “I’m not disappointed that I didn’t get a hat-trick, the most important thing is that I scored and more importantly the team won.  I’ll have to wait for the hat-trick the next time! “I enjoyed it. It was a great game for the team and I’m happy.”
