Odion Ighalo scored on his EPL debut and promised more goals as Watford held hosts Everton to a 2-2 draw on Saturday. Former Granada ace Ighalo, who was a 74th minute substitute for Manuel Jurado, scored what looked like the winner for Watford in the 83rd minute to give the newly promoted side a 2-1 lead.
However, Cote d’Ivoire forward Aruna Kone equalized for the home team three minutes later off Romelo Lukaku’s pass.
“I thank God for the goal and I am very happy to score on my EPL first game. I dedicate it to God because I have vowed to always give him the glory.
And by God grace is one of the many goals to come,” Ighalo told AfricanFootball. com He will also take the result of the game. “Well, the draw is okay against a good side like Everton but three points would have been better,” he said. Ighalo scored 20 goals last season in the English Championship to help Watford gain promotion to EPL.
