Leke James is expecting much better performances from himself and even lots of goals in the Saudi Arabian Professional League even as the 2020/21 top-flight campaign progresses.
He finally opened his goal account in the Saudi Professional League on Wednesday after netting a brace in Al Qadsiah’s 3-3 draw with Al Ain at the Prince Mohamed Bin Fahd Stadium.
Before Wednesday, James who joined Al Qadsiah last month from FK Molde of Norway had made just an assist in five league outings with the Nigerian striker surprisingly embarking on a goal drought.
But on Wednesday, everything changed as James was on ground to hit the back of the net on two occasions with his first goal arriving in the 37th minute assisted by Hamad Al Yami to make scores 1-1.
James also made it 2-2 in the 76th minute but this time around, his goal came courtesy of an assist from fellow Nigerian compatriot, Stanley Ohawuchi who got a yellow card four minutes to the end.
James thereafter took to the social media to express his happiness with netting two goals: “It can only get better. #betterdaysahead #2021goalaccountopened #Godisgreat #grace,” he wrote on Instagram.
The Nigerian pair of James and Ohawuchi started and finished the game which happened to be the former’s sixth Saudi Pro League appearance for Al Qadsiah with two goals and an assist in his record.
