Ighalo had a fruitful November, scoring twice and posting several impressive performances.

Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh invited Ighalo for the Super Eagles first leg World Cup qualifier against Swaziland which took place on November 13. The game ended 0-0 with Ighalo playing throughout the encounter.
In the return leg which took place four days later in Port Harcourt, Ighalo was also in action and helped the Eagles win 2-0.

Ighalo returned to club assignment on November 21 when Watford welcomed Manchester United at Vicarage Road. After several attempts to restore parity after going a goal down, Ighalo finally won the penalty which led to Watford's equaliser. They still went on to lose the game following 2-1 following a late Troy Deeney's own goal.

Then on November 28, Watford were guests to struggling Aston Villa and at the end of 90 minutes, Watford won 3-2. Ighalo, who tormented Villa's defence throughout the encounter, gave Watford the lead.
