Nigerian international striker Odion Ighalo says he wants to score his fifth goal for the Super Eagles.

The West African giants are up against Greece in an international friendly on Tuesday as they prepare for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The Changchun Yatai hitman revealed he wants to score his fifth goal for his country after their 1-0 win over Poland last weekend.

The former Watford striker in the English Premier League made his debut for the 2013 African champions in 2015 and has netted a total of four goals in 13 appearances.

Having recently scored for Changchun, he will hope to score against the Greeks on Tuesday night.

“Hopefully, I can get a goal or two but the most important thing is to see how we perform as a team. There’s no pressure,” he is quoted by CompleteSportsNigeria.

Ighalo last found the back of the net in their 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign against Cameroon.
