Ighalo Targets Fifth Super Eagles Goal Vs Poland, Insists No Pressure

Ighalo Targets Fifth Super Eagles Goal Vs Poland, Insists No Pressure

By Johnny Edward:

Changchun Yatai striker Odion Ighalo is targeting his fifth goal for the Super Eagles when they face Poland in a friendly in Wroclaw from 8.45pm tonight, but he insists he is not under pressure, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Ighalo, who will lead the Super Eagles attack on his return to the squad after missing the last two games against Algeria and Argentina due to injury, has scored four goals in 13 international appearances for the Super Eagles.

“Hopefully, I can get a goal or two but the most important thing is to see how we perform as a team. There’s no pressure,” Ighalo told CSN.

The 29-year-old striker scored on his official debut for Nigeria in a 2-0 win over Chad in Kaduna on the 13th of June, 2015.

The former Watford and Granada striker also scored against Cameroon in a 3-0 international win in Belgium on the 10th of November, 2015.

Ighalo went on a five-game goal drought before scoring his third goal against Luxembourg in another friendly on the 31st of May, 2016.

His fourth strike came against Cameroon in a 2018 World Cup qualifier in Uyo. Nigeria won the game 4-0 on October 1, 2017.

Friday’s game will be the first time both Poland and Nigeria will clash at full international level.

    This guy is not consistent at all. Is he a defender to wait after 6 matches before scoring another goal? What is he even doing in the team when there are better & younger players in Nigeria.
    Time out!

    @Wole, I greet u. ur head dey house. Some ppl dont know football them still believe Ighalo is a big striker that without him Nigeria go finish.
    Ighalo time don pass. Gernot rohr will drpp him if he doesn’t score in today’s match. We need Unuachi or another good striker.
    NFF please fans don’t need Ighalo again..
