Watford striker Odion Ighalo has picked his goal in the opening game of the Premier League last season as his best thus far in England.
Ighalo came off the bench to hit target in the 83rd
minute, when he skinned the highly-regarded John Stones before he fired past a helpless Tim Howard to smash home a solo goal.
The last season’s opener for Watford ended in a 2-2 draw.
“My best goal was against Everton – It was my first goal last season in my first game in the Premier League,” he revealed.
“That is the best goal in England for me.”
Ighalo will go on to score a total of 15 goals in 37 appearances in the Premier League as ‘The Hornets’ stayed up on their return to the English top flight against most predictions.
However, the Nigeria star’s goal at Goodison in August 2015 was not picked by the fans as Watford’s best of the past season with that honour going to Algeria midfielder Adlene Guediouera’s strike against Arsenal in the FA Cup.
