‘I Came With My Scoring Boots’ – Ighalo Fires Warning to Cameroon
In-form Super Eagles striker Jude Odion Ighalo has fired a strong warning to the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon ahead of the lavish World Cup qualification double-header beginning this weekend in Uyo.
Ighalo, who last featured for the Eagles in September last year, gave hint of his intent to do damage as he hit the Eagles camp Monday.
The former Watford striker was an unused sub in the last qualifying match against Algeria and has been left out in some of the more recent games but says he couldn’t be happier to be back in the squad.
Leading the Chinese Super League with 11 goals this term, Ighalo, 27, is expected to spearhead the Eagles attack at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium, Uyo on Friday and has announced his intentions to breach the Cameroon rearguard, Vanguard writes.
As he arrived in camp Monday, the Ajegunle-born striker said: “It is true, I have been on a great scoring run. I must say I came back with my scoring boots and I pray I convert my chances against Cameroon.
“Though, winning is paramount to me as that is the main aim of the team, I desire to score against Cameroon,”
His last goal for the Eagles came in a 3-0 friendly win over Cameroon in Belgium two years ago. A goal for him Friday would just be timely, for him and the Eagles as the stakes are even higher.
