I am really excited about this achievement and I want to thank God for this. It’s something that I wasn’t expecting, but I just want to thank God for what he has done for me. It’s everyone’s wish to get such recognition.
I also want to thank my teammates who made it possible for me to achieve this. When I went to Kenya, I was hoping to be the top goalscorer, but I got this because of God. I am really happy. I didn’t think we would reach the final, but because of God, we did it
