Daniel Nwoke:Centre of Attraction

Wednesday, April 6, 2011, 22:40

Joshua Cacciattolo writes on the Floriana striker Daniel Nwoke, possibly the most in form striker at this moment in time

There were no doubts of  Nwoke’s ability in front of goal. He had, after all, celebrated more than 70 strikes for Msida St Joseph in his previous experience. In Floriana’s green and white stripes, Nigerian Daniel Nwoke is threatening to surpass the scoring feats of Terence Scerri and Alfred Effiong who have scored fourteen goals in this campaign.

His net-bulging feat last Sunday, when the Nigerian grabbed a quartet in the 5-1 mauling, saw his total for the season rise to 12 goals in just 7 matches. With that averaging out at nearly two goals a game, the Nigerian is on course for a historic top scorer crown by the time this campaign is consigned to history.

At the age of 27, Daniel Nwoke has already exploded with his ability. For Maltese football he’s not just a footballer who dribbles, his ideas are of pure class too, but today his playing style is a source of  entertainment.

It’s a remarkable turnaround for Floriana who began this season under a new committee. The Greens, under new coach Michael Woods, bounced back after the 3-0 defeat to Valletta, and are on course for the runner up spot and also qualify for European competitions next year, after more than a decade’s absence.

Now is definitely the time for President Johann Said to sign the Nigerian for another season to continue his project for the Grenns, although contacts have started with another proven striker in Maltese football for next season, Guess who?

    Int siehbi ghadek tghix fl-ghanqbut tal-imghoddi. Issa ghoqod qalleb il-kotba tal-istorja u kkonsla, Izda xorta fil-prezent m’ghandekx biex tifrah u, ha nghidlek, se tkompli tittama ghal snin kbar qabel forsi jsir miraklu u tiehdu xi tazza.
    Pero` biex inwiegbek mhu veru xejn li ahna hadna l-unuri f’dawn l-ahhar 30 sena. F’dik l-epoka jien kont zaghzugh u l-Valletta hadu l-lijg kemm il-darba, sewwasew 11 il-darba sa-sena 1980. Dan biex nurik kif int m’ghamilx il-homework tieghek sew. L-origini ta’ Valletta kienu Valletta United u mbghaghad sar Valletta F.C. Floriana F.C. ukoll li hemm zmien li kienu maghrufa bhala Floriana Ajax imma fl-essenza taghhom xorta baqaw Floriana.
    It-timijiet li semmejt int Valletta St. Paul’s u Rovers Utd kienu timijiet amateurs li kienu jilghabu f’kategoriji ohra. Valletta St. Paul’s
    ghadhom jezistu sal-lum. Habib, int hallat il-hass mal-gass, jiddispjacini nghidlek.
