Good Move: Odion Ighalo Returns To Super Eagles

Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has said that Al-Shabab striker, Odion Ighalo, is in his provisional squad for their 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Cape Verde and Liberia.

The three-time African champions will play the Blue Sharks and the Lone Stars in their final group qualifying games.

Rohr says he decided to recall Ighalo because of his leadership, although it is still left for the 32-year-old to accept the invitation.

“I put him in the bigger provisional first list for the next games.

“He is doing very well at his club, and he still has the ambition to help his country. Because we miss his leadership, we miss his experience. We miss the goals he scores.

“He was the best scorer at the AFCON, the best scorer during the qualifiers, and I think we have so many young players, and they could learn a lot on the side of such a great player.

“Ighalo is a very important man. I hope that he can come back,” Rohr said in a Q&A on Elegbete TV.

Ighalo retired from international duty after finishing as the top scorer at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Before his retirement, he scored 16 goals in 35 games for the Super Eagles
