Timothy Okereke scored a brace on his Phnom Penh Crown debut during the Red Singha’s convincing 3-0 victory over Electricite Du Cambodge at the Smart RSN Stadium last week.

The striker is confident that he can get better and score more goals to help the Phnom Penh side bring back the glory after they missed out on clinching the Metfone Cambodian League title for four successive seasons.

Timothy Okereke told ppcfc.com: “I feel great about my first debut for Phnom Penh Crown, and I’m excited and grateful to score a brace at our Smart RSN Stadium. I really expect to score more than last season, and I’m working harder to score for the team.

“That’s my goal as a striker to score more goals [than last season]. I have the confidence to do more and perform better. It’s my job to help the team and bring back the glory.

“I still have a lot of things to work on, but let me make it clear that there’s no clear chances in football till you score. The goalkeeper is there to save the balls, and we’re there to score, so sometimes it might go the either way.

“I’m not really desperate and hungry during the pre-season. I’m new to the team, so I’m trying to adapt myself to the team. I have my own power and advantage, so I’m only trying to get better. I’m getting used to the team now than before during the pre-season.

“There’s room for improvement in the team, but I’m trying as much as possible to help the team. We’re strong though not enough, but we’re working tirelessly to get stronger to face the challenges that come up. Our team has so many prospects, and we’re going to be fine and better because we play with love and unity.”
