Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo says he's promising Nigerians goals on Saturday in the highly anticipated FIFA 2018 World Cup qualifying clash against Algeria at the Godswill Akpabi Stadium in Uyo.

In a chat with reporters after yesterday's final training session in Abuja before the team's departure to Akwa Ibom, the former Udinese player added that Nigeria's Vice President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo's visit will motivate the team to give their best on Saturday.

"What I can say is that I'm promising Nigerians goals against Algeria because I'll do all I can to find the net and on the visit of the vice president I believe it will motivate us and give us added energy to give our best on the day."

Meanwhile, Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, has assured Nigerians that Leon Balogun, Brown Ideye and Shehu Abdullahi, who finally trained with the rest of the team yesterday morning, are all ready for the Algeria encounter.

Rohr on Monday had described as minor the injuries that kept the trio out of the training session, saying that they were excused from the exercise as a precautionary measure.

But yesterday, in the team's final training session in Abuja Abdullahi, Balogun and Ideye all joined in to train with the rest of the team which left Rohr feeling happy that he'll have all his options intact for the massive game.

"As you can they are now ready, the doctor has assured me, so there is no problem with the team. We have start full training this morning (yesterday) and I am confident that every of the invited players will take part. We are gearing up and the players are aware of the task," he told the press.

The German tactician also hailed Vice president Osinbajo's visit to the team's training session, saying it will go a long way to motivate the team to give their best against the Desert Foxes.
