Nigeria forward, Odion Ighalo, is in cloud nine after his brace helped Watford beat Newcastle United 2-1 on Saturday, completesportsnigeria.com can report.
The powerful striker found the net twice during a superb first-half display at the St. James’ Park to increase his haul in the league this season to four.
Ighalo is not only delighted with his performance, but that of the entire team.
“I’m happy not only for my goals, but also for the all round performance of the team,” the erstwhile Udinese of Italy told the club’s official website.
“We really worked hard from the first minute to the last minute, and we really want to keep pushing like this.
“The game is now gone, all we are thinking about Crystal Palace in the next game, so we want to focus and keep on going.”
He has now scored 20 goals since the start of 2015 more than any other player in England.
