Ighalo praises Watford’s great team performance

13 September 2015, 17:14

Abuja - Nigeria striker Jude Odion Ighalo has praised the 'great team performance' which resulted in the Watford posting a 1-0 win over Swansea City – their first in the Premier League this season.

Ighalo’s close-range goal handed Watford the lead just before the hour, and Quique Sanchez Flores’ men held on for a morale-boosting victory despite the dismissal of Valon Behrami on 65 minutes.

“It was a great performance, but it’s not only this game, you see from the first game against Everton to this game we’ve been working hard as a team,” Ighalo told the Watford Weekend Post-Match Review.

“The team has been doing well, even in the last two games we played at home, so it’s a big relief and it’s a big team effort.

“I’m happy about the performance of the team, even when we were one man down we still worked hard to get the three points, so it’s a good day for us.”

The 26-year old striker was delighted to be the man to score Watford’s first goal since the opening day at Everton, even more so that it came in front of the excellent home supporters.

“It’s always a pleasure scoring and getting three points in front of the home fans, so it’s a great feeling, and I’m really happy about the way they are singing my name,” said Ighalo.

“Like I said yesterday after I signed my contract, they’ve been pushing us and keeping us going and they’re one of the reasons why I made the decision to be here.

“I want them to keep on supporting the team, we’re going to have some difficult times, but when they keep supporting us like this I think we can make it.”
