“My twin sister, Akhere, will call me, crying, saying she misses her and, sometimes when I am alone, I cry too.
“It is a very painful loss but I am trying to be strong as a man.”
On how he has decided to honour his late sister, the striker says: “Every goal I score from now until I finish my career will be dedicated to God and to her,” Ighalo continued.
