The Nigerian forward is the top scorer for the French club but has had opportunities hard to come by with the Super Eagles
Girondins Bordeaux’s matchwinner Josh Maja was ecstatic after his 81st-minute goal secured a crucial 1-0 victory against Nîmes Olympique during the 28th day of Ligue 2.
The English striker spoke to beIN Sports (via Made in Girondins) after the game and shared his thoughts on the match and their chances for promotion.
Maja expressed his delight at the result, stating that it was a significant win for the club and that they deserved the three points.
He also emphasized the importance of maintaining their momentum and continuing their winning run after the international break.
“We must continue after the break,” Maja said. “It’s very good for the club; we won, we took the three points. We have to continue after the break. We are happy. For the rest, we have to continue in this good state of mind, in training, to hope to win even more.”
Bordeaux’s win sees them second in the standings, just seven points behind the leaders. Maja’s goal could be vital in their push for promotion, and his confident words after the match will undoubtedly give his teammates a boost ahead of their next game.
The striker now has 12 league goals this term and will hope to continue his form after the international break and help his team secure promotion to Ligue 1.
Despite his brilliance in France’s second tier, Maja was not included in Nigeria’s latest squad for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Guinea-Bissau next week.
The former Sunderland striker has only one cap for the Super Eagles.
