Super Eagles and Gent forward Moses Simon says he is sure he got the last touch for his team first goal, which has been credited as an own goal in their 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur in the Europa League.

The goal which helped Gent draw level after going behind has been credited as an own goal scored by Spurs forward Harry Kane, but Moses told popular Kaduna journalist Mowiz Mohammed Suleiman that he had the last touch.

Mowiz sent a copy of his chat with the Super Eagles forward to the online editor of Owngoalnigeria.com to clear the air regarding the goal.

Initially Simon said he can’t really tell whose head the ball came off last, before finally saying he is convinced he touched the ball and not the head of the Spurs captain.
