'There is no amount of money that can get me motivated'- Ighalo talks about Super Eagles win bonus

Nigeria International Ighalo and Changchun Yatai forward, says he is not looking to be motivated by the money from the Super Eagles, that “playing in the World Cup” is what keeps him motivated as he would be crowning the frontline of the Super Eagles side against Zambia, in a World Cup qualifier clash on Saturday, 7.

The Eagles have been promised some money if they get a victory against Wedson Nyirenda's men.

Ighalo said the financial reward is only a bonus.

He said;

“Most of us in the team have not gone to the World Cup, so there is no amount of money that can get me motivated,” said Ighalo.

“Playing in the World Cup is my motivation because I have only been to the U20 World Cup.

“It will be a great honour for me to represent over 170 million Nigerians in Russia – [a tournament which has eluded] some great players.

“Against Zambia, I will do whatever it takes to win the game though a draw will be good for us.”

He added: “We'll go into this game with maximum concentration and focus because a game like this is dicey because we are playing against a young and good side.

“With the calibre of players we have, we are capable of beating any team and on Saturday, we are going to win by God’s grace.

“We have worked so hard and we still have two more trainings to go and on Friday, we will know who will be on parade.”
