Ighalo’s Brace Thrills Watford Coach

Watford manager, Quique Sanchez Flores, has praised Odion Ighalo after the striker's brace gave the Hornets a 2-1away win against Newcastle United.

Two first half goals from Ighalo, gave Watford their second victory, and his fourth goal of the season.

According to eurosport.co.uk, Flores who applauded Ighalo's decision to stay with Watford, described him as a very vital player for the Hornets.

"He took a decision two months ago to stay here at Watford – he had offers from other teams. He decided to stay here with us, so it's clever because he saw something in the football that is good for him," Flores remarked.

"He is involved a lot with the team in training during the week, so for us, he is a very important player.

"But I like to talk about the full squad because they are fighting like heroes every single week, they are playing really, really well. They try to improve every time and give the best they have so it's not only one man.

"It was nice for Ighalo, but it was a very good performance from the whole squad."
