Odion Ighalo netted a first-half brace as Watford got their pre-season tour up and running with a 4-1 over SC Veri in Germany.

Premier League newcomers Watford eased to a 4-1 win over German minnows SC Veri in the first match of their pre-season tour.

Striker Odion Ighalo helped himself to a first-half brace before Scotland international Ikechi Anya made it 3-0 at the interval with an excellent volley.

Anya stained his night's work by giving away a penalty, which Hamadi Al Ghaddioui converted for the hosts.

Fellow winger Lloyd Dyer made sure of victory by netting a fine solo goal 15 minutes from time.
