Ighalo will play against Swaziland like he is playing Arsenal

Odion Ighalo has insisted Nigeria cannot afford to take Swaziland lightly in a 2018 World Cup qualifier in Lobambo and he will therefore prepare for the game as he would against Arsenal in the English Premier League.

The Watford striker, who has scored seven goals in the EPL, said there are no longer minnows in world football.

“There are no small countries in football and so I will prepare to play against Swaziland as I would against Arsenal,” said the 26-year-old forward.

“I will give 101 per cent whenever play for my country.”


Former Nigeria U20 skipper Ighalo has scored two goals for the Super Eagles.
