Odion Ighalo to rejoin Super Eagles – NFF


There is hope that former Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo, will rejoin the squad for the remaining part of the World Cup qualifiers.

Ighalo ‘retired’ from Eagles in 2019 after a memorable relationship marked by ups and downs.

He, however, had more pluses, scoring goals, than negatives.

Nigeria Football Federation President, Amaju Linnick, gave the hint of the return in a statement on IG.

He said:
Al-Shabab striker in his squad for the clash against Cape Verde and Liberia next month.

“I had a long conversation with Odion Ighalo, personally I believe we need experience in our attack to combine with our energetic youthful Osimhen, Onuachu, Kelechi et al.

“Odion’s body language is very positive. We are also in touch with his agents and club.

“The vibe going into these last two games and indeed Afcon is very good,” Pinnick wrote on Instagram.”
