Ighalo makes Super Eagles pledge

23 September 2015, 11:11

London - Watford of England striker Jude Odion Ighalo has expressed his delight following his recall to the Super Eagles, and says he hopes to give a good account of himself under coach Sunday Oliseh.

The 26-year old is currently the most in-form striker in England for the calendar year, having scored 20 goals in 24 games in 2015, the last of which was a brace against Newcastle United at the weekend.

And having been left out of Oliseh's team for the games against Tanzania and Niger Republic, Ighalo has been recalled for the friendly matches against Congo DR and Cameroon next month.

He says: "I'm happy to be back to the Super Eagles so I just want to go there and give my best and I will work with the team and the coach," Ighalo said.

The friendlies come up in Belgium in October, and are set to give new coach Sunday Oliseh a better understanding of the team ahead of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers, and the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers as well.

And Ighalo says it is important they played these friendly games so as to help them gel and understand one another better as a team.

"These friendly games are good for the team because we have to play together and gel together so we can understand one another better. So I think it is a very good step for the NFF to organize more friendly games for us," Ighalo stated.

The striker has scored four goals in five games for Watford this season, and is expected to hit double figures before the end of the season.
