Red-hot Cameroonian forward Njie Clinton Mua scored his seventh goal in seven games his club on Sunday to help Sivasspor pick a point against visitors Samunspor of compatriot Olivier Ntcham following a 1-1 draw to mark the start to the 2023/24 season.
Njie’s superb half-volley 11th minutes into the contest lifted the roofs of the New Sivas Stadium but wasn’t enough as Van Drongelen equalized late on to deny puncture the partying mood the home fans had had all-afternoon.
Conceding the goal 12 minutes from time may have dampened the mood of the Sivasspor fans, but the beauty of the strike from their Cameroonian forward and his present form were two aspects that were good enough to satisfy them.
The former Tottenham Hotspur and Olympique Marseille forward is currently experiencing one of the best run in his career as he entered the new season on a run of six goals scored in six games.
Though Sivasspor didn’t get maximum points from the efforts of the match day 1 fixture, they will take pride from their impressive 52% ball possession returns on the day to Gaziantep in their second league commitment of the season this coming Sunday.
Njie has experienced an unexpected low in his career in the past two seasons, but his build up to the new season and the start has left many hoping he could be in for a boom in a career that was expected to bring more glory to him and country.
The form of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) winner is a welcome development for coach Rigobert Song who is expected to announce his squad for next month’s cliffhanger against Burundi this week.
