Odion Ighalo made it six goals from four pre-season fixtures, as Watford finished their tour of Germany with a 2-0 victory over SC Paderborn 07.
Summer signing Matej Vydra gave the Hornets a first-half lead with a clinical finish after collecting a precision through-ball from Troy Deeney.
Ighalo, coming on as a second-half substitute, then doubled the advantage within minutes of entering the field after Ikechi Anya’s passed to him in space.
The Nigeria international is reaping the rewards of spending an entire pre-season with the Premier League new boys.
After an incredible debut campaign in England - in which he scored 20 goals in 35 Championship appearances - he looks set to make a real impact ahead of Watford's return to the top flight.
Next on the agenda for the 2014-15 second tier runners-up are further away friendlies against Dundee United and Cardiff City, ahead of a high-profile clash with UEFA Europa League holders, Sevilla, at Vicarage Road.
Here is how Watford fans reacted on Twitter as the prolific striker found the back of the net within minutes of entering the fray.
I swear the #BPL fans are gonna enjoy watching Odion Ighalo— IG: GяαND DαD (@igaMoore) July 19, 2015
Stand out performers for me were Prodl and Ighalo. Deeney not at his best but still 2 assists, Capoue both sloppy and brilliant #watfordfc— Hornets forever (@ForeverHornets) July 19, 2015
Watford not doing too badly in pre-season. Ighalo is currently a goal machine, hopefully brings that when the season starts !— Matt Kibbler (@MattKibbler) July 19, 2015
Ighalo always scoring for Watford...he's going for the EPL golden boot— FIRST SLEEP BENDER (@Emmybalotelli) July 19, 2015

Ighalo is from another planet. Backing him for at least 10 next season. #WatfordFC— Diggles (@SemtexSports) July 19, 2015
Ighalo needs to stop this, it's just out of order now— Sam Copson (@Copson333) July 19, 2015
its actually getting unfair to play ighalo now. its like bringing on Ronaldo against barnet— Henry (@HTAM96) July 19, 2015
Ighalo is knocking on the door of my fantasy team. And by knocking on the door I mean I'm making him captain and naming my team after him.— Stephen Fletcher (@sfletcherWFC) July 19, 2015
I have a feeling Ighalo will be our top scorer this season— Luke (@LKenz) July 19, 2015
Two-nil #WatfordFC, Ighalo. It is truly incredible that he is always in the right place when the balls bounces about in the area.— Adam Newson (@AdamNewson_Wat) July 19, 2015
