Nnamdi Oduamadi recalled by AC Milan after hat-trick at FIFA Confederation Cup
Nnamdi Oduamadi described his hat-trick against Tahiti at the Fifa Confederations Cup as ‘massive’ and says it is the reward of hard work.
The goals have also earned him an immediate recall to his parent club AC Milan.
“I am very happy. I really worked hard and getting three goals in the Confederations Cup is massive for me,” he told KickOffNigeria.com.
Oduamadi, on loan to Varese from Milan, was to find out just how massive it was indeed when he discovered that after his second goal, AC Milan president Adriano Galliani called up manager Massimilliano Allegri and directed him to bring the Nigerian back Milan’s pre-season training camp.
“That’s fantastic for me and I want to give glory to God.”
Oduamadi spent last season on loan at Varese, playing a very good second half of the season after returning from injury, which cost him a spot on Nigeria’s Nations Cup squad.
But on a night of personal glory, Oduamadi, like the rest of the Nigeria squad felt a tinge of disappointment not only at the numerous missed opportunities, but also at his wrongfully disallowed goal.
“I’m a little bit disappointed that we missed so many chances and that the referee cancelled a good goal which I scored.
“But let’s see what happens in the second game.”
