Soccer-Man United's Ighalo fuelled by memory of Wembley heartbreak

July 18 (Reuters) - Manchester United striker Odion Ighalo
says he is drawing inspiration from his previous setback at
Wembley as he looks to fire his side past Chelsea in the FA Cup
semi-final on Sunday.
Ighalo, 31, was part of the Watford team that were defeated
2-1 by Crystal Palace in the semi-final in 2016, a result that
denied them the opportunity to face United in the final.
"It was a difficult one to take against Palace. If we'd have
won, we'd have played United in the final," the Nigerian striker
told the United website.
"Unfortunately, we lost. It was a bitter one to take but
this is an opportunity to make it right and go forward to the
final... To get to the final would be great for me in my life
and my career. It would make my dreams perfect."
Ighalo, who extended his loan deal at the Premier League
club from Shanghai Shenhua until the end of January 2021, has
scored five goals in 15 appearances in all competitions.
However, with strikers Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and
Anthony Martial in a rich vein of form, Ighalo has found himself
consigned to the substitutes' bench.
"They are doing so well. Seeing them playing every week is a
joy. Rashford has come back from his injury and is doing well.
Martial is scoring goals, Greenwood is unbelievable, he is such
a good finisher with both feet," he said.
"The team is doing well and the three forwards are scoring
goals and that's what we need - goals win games."
