Ighalo Joins Nigerians in EPL as Watford Gains Promotion


Nigeria international striker Odion Ighalo has voiced his sentiments following the promotion of Watford to the Barclays English Premier League from the Championship.

Watford sealed their promotion on Saturday after the Hornets won 2-0 over Brighton & Hove Albion at the American Express Community Stadium thanks to goals from Troy Deeney and Matej Vydra.

The feat was also achieved by a combination of factors including Watford’s closest rivals for promotion – Middlesbrough and Norwich City – failing to win on Saturday.

Ighalo played for an hour in the game before he was substituted, with Vydra taking his place.

The attacker subsequently took the time to celebrate the news on Twitter.

“Thank u JESuS, becos at Last it all ended in PRAISE,” he tweeted via @ighalojude.

Ighalo has enjoyed a richly rewarding season scoring 20 goals for Watford in the Championship this season.

The 25-year-old joined the Hornets from Italian club Udinese last season for an undisclosed fee.
