Arsenal icon, Ian Wright has named Nigeria’s Emmanuel Dennis as one player the Premier League would miss when he returns to Africa for the Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
Dennis scored what West Ham captain, Mark Nobble described as a ‘great goal’ in Watford’s 4-1 loss to West Ham United at Vicarage Road on Tuesday night.
The Nigeria international scored his sixth goal of the season, four minutes into the game after evading the challenge of Craig Dawson.
Dennis has directly been involved in ten goals in his last eight league matches, being six goals and four assists and has contributed in 66.7 percent of the goals Watford have scored in those games.
Dennis is all but set to leave England for Nigeria for the preparation for the African Cup of Nations.
“At the start Tim (Sherwood) mentioned that he (Dennis) is the one if anything could happen it’s probably going to come from him,” Wright told Premier League Productions.
“That’s beautifully taken, composure, he’s not rushing that.
“He’s going to be sorely missed when he goes to the AFCON because that’s exactly what Watford need.”
