Utaka thrilled by first Beijing goal

Beijing Guoan striker Peter Utaka has told MTNFootball.com he is excited to get his first goal for his new Chinese club.

The prolific Nigeria striker promised more goals after he hit the target in an emphatic 5-2 victory over Qingdao Jonoon on Wednesday in a Chinese FA Cup game.

“I am humbled to get my first goal for Beijing Guoan,” Utaka told MTNFootball.com

“It was a great moment when you eventually meet people’s expectations. A lot of fans have been waiting for me to celebrate my goal but I thank God it has not come too late, so I feel great for the first goal in Beijing and I intend to build on it for more goals to come.”

The former Dalian Aerbin star added: “I am not under any form of pressure to score goals, it will come for sure. I scored 20 goals in my first season (in China) but I can always get better.”
