Ighalo Not Distracted By Goal Drought, Upbeat Nigeria’ll Beat Egypt

Ighalo Not Distracted By Goal Drought, Upbeat Nigeria’ll Beat Egypt

By Johnny Edward:

 

Watford striker Odion Ighalo has insisted his six game goal drought is nothing to do with the transfer speculation surrounding his future at Watford.

 

The Nigeria striker has failed to add to his 15 goals this season with his last strike coming against Nottingham Forest in the Emirates FA Cup.

 

"It will come to an end I believe, because I'm working extra hard," Ighalo told Completesportsnigeria.com.

 

On the speculations linking him away from the Vicarage Road in the summer, the 26 year old forward says he's not distracted.

 

"I have a five-year contract with Watford. The rumours will continue as long as I am doing well, but I am not having any sleepless nights and will finish the season well."

 

Ighalo also predicted tough games for the Super Eagles when seven-time African champions, Egypt, visit Nigeria on March 25 in Kaduna and in Alexandria on March 29.

 

“It won’t be an easy game, I won’t lie. But it’s possible to win, we have what it takes to win. We will fight for the whole game to win,” Ighalo enthused.
