Ighalo: Nigeria Will Qualify For World Cup

Ahead of Nigeria's World Cup qualifier against Zambia on Saturday, former Watford striker Odion Ighalo remains confident that the Super Eagles will secure their place at the 2018 World Cup finals.
''I am expecting a tough game but with hard work, determination and mostly, by the Grace of God, we are going to win,'' said Ighalo to the Nigeria Football Federation.

''We will qualify for the World Cup. We have what it takes.''
The Nigerian forward, Odion Ighalo also added: “Most of us in the team have not gone to the World Cup, so there is no amount of money that can get me motivated.

 “Playing in the World Cup is my motivation because I have only been to the U20 World Cup.

“It will be a great honour for me to represent over 170 million Nigerians in Russia – [a tournament which has eluded] some great players. 

“Against Zambia, I will do whatever it takes to win the game though a draw will be good for us.  

“We’ll go into this game with maximum concentration and focus because a game like this is dicey because we are playing against a young and good side. 

“With the calibre of players we have, we are capable of beating any team and on Saturday, we are going to win by God’s grace.

“We have worked so hard and we still have two more trainings to go and on Friday, we will know who will be on parade.”
