Ighalo: Zambia Match Is Like A Final

Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo says the important 2018 World Cup qualifier match against Zambia feels like a final.

Nigeria welcomes Zambia to the Godswill Akpabio stadium in Uyo on October 7, with a win securing their qualification for the World Cup in Russia.

“I’m happy to be called up again because it’s always a great honour to play for my country,” Ighalo told BBC Sport.

“We know Zambia is a strong team and they will come with full determination in Uyo, we cannot engage in irrelevant pre-match talking but deliver on the pitch.

“I’ve never played at the World Cup and like my other colleagues, we all want to be in Russia, this is like a final for us.”
