Watford striker Odion Ighalo has vowed he will soon start scoring again after he has now gone seven games without finding the back of the net.

Ighalo has fired 14 goals in the English Premier League, but he last scored on January 30. It’s a concern for both his club, who want to secure their Premier League

status as soon as possible, and also for Nigeria, who face Egypt in two AFCON 2017 qualifiers later this month.

“I won’t allow this (his goals drought) to put me down, it happens to all strikers, but I know the goals will soon start coming. I will continue to work hard and it will be a matter of time before I am scoring again,” he declared.

“The second half of the season is often more difficult, but we will get 40 points as we already have 36 points and we still have nine games to go. We have had some bad   results in the last two, three games.”

Seven-time African champions Egypt will be guests of Nigeria on March 25 in Kaduna, before they welcome the Super Eagles to 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,” he assured.

Samson Siasia is the Eagles caretaker coach following the shock resignation of Sunday Oliseh.

Ighalo noted he has previously worked with the coach with the U20s and Olympic team and he will give him his full support.

“I have worked with Siasia in the U20 and U23 teams, he is a disciplinarian and knows what he wants. He will play an attacking football and we have to give him our best. I will give him 100%,” he said. (mtnfootball.com)
