Odion Ighalo cannot stop scoring and continued with his good habit on Saturday as he struck for Watford in the Barclays English Premier League. He struck for the Hornets on the stroke of half time in the 1-1 draw with AFC Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.
The Nigerian had the Bournemouth goalkeeper, Artur Boruc, to thank for the goal as the Polish goalkeeper produced an astonishing howler under no pressure whatsoever to hand the Nigerian his fifth league goal on a platter. Ighalo however still had work to do as Boruc seemed to have the danger dealt with. The striker kept his composure and produced a feint that left Boruc sprawling embarrassingly before the Hornets attacker passed the ball into an unguarded goal.
Ighalo’s goalscoring record in 2015 is quite impressive as he has scored 21 goals this year. No player in England’s top-four leagues have managed that total in the calendar year. The forward has now scored five league goals in eight league matches this season.
The Watford striker Odion Ighalo signed a five-year contract with the Premier League club. The 26-year-old has scored 21 goals in 42 appearances since signing for the Hornets from Udinese of Serie A in July 2014. He has played in every one of Watford’s Premier League matches this season, and netted in the opening-day draw against Everton in August.
Ighalo made his Nigeria debut in March and scored his first international goal against Chad three months later.
