Kenyan striker Esse Akida expressed wants to score more goals after opening her Panelinio Protathlima (Greece women’s top-flight league) account with a brace in PAOK’s 9-0 win over Agrotikos EM on Monday.
The striker who has constantly been snubbed by the national team has been out for the past two weeks with an injury after announcing her arrival in Greece with a hattrick in her Champions League debut.
Speaking about her dreams of the season, Akida told the club’s official portal: “I am grateful to be back on the pitch after a minor injury I had and combined my comeback with two goals and three assists. The result is encouraging for the whole team and will help us become even better. It is not easy to win by such a margin. I thank God for helping us.”
I still have goals. I wake up each day believing that I’ll achieve all of them. There will be mistakes along the way, but with hard work, there are no limits to these goals I have set.

“I can not say that I have a tendency(of scoring goals) but I’m attracted to doing so. I always want more and it is something that pushes me. When you know you can do more it pushes you. When I’m fit I want to be the best, I want to achieve more things.”
Next for Akida and her team is a tie against Kastoria on November 7, 2021.
