Newcastle forward Ameobi relishes first Nigerian goal

Newcastle striker Shola Ameobi was delighted to score his first international goal at the age of 31. Ameobi, winning his fourth cap for Nigeria, struck in Tuesday's 4-1 friendly win against Burkina Faso.

"I have finally scored and I am very happy with the goal," he tells BBC Sport.

"I've wanted it to go like that for a long time and for it to have gone like that was a dream come true."
