John Utaka is talking of scoring once more against the Flames of Malawi when they play hosts to Nigeria's Super Eagles at the Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre this Saturday.
The Montpellier forward scored the winning goal against the Flames in a 2004 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying game in Blantyre on March 29, 2003.
But the 30-year-old striker acknowledged on Wednesday that "the three points" remain important than who scores.
“I would like to score again in Malawi but I think what is important is not who scores but the three points. I like to speak as a team and I believe that we have what it takes to beat them (Malawi) at home," Utaka said while speaking to reporters during a media parley in Abuja on Wednesday.
The former RC Lens' man also had kind words for the Super Eagles' players from the domestic front.
He frowned at the disparity often created between the stars based at home and their Europe-based counterparts.
Utaka said: “We all started here (in Nigeria). I don’t like the distinction made about the professionals. Whether at home or in Europe, we are all professional."
Nigeria's Super Eagles leave for Blantyre on Thursday for the Matchday 2 game in the 2014 Fifa World Cup qualification.
