No, he passes to no one. He doesn't pick anyone to pass to. He just pass the ball hoping that a SE player will be there

Exactly, U got it!

He should curl the ball in from the left flank when in a good scoring angle. This would be the joker as the algerians would always believe he would lay a pass to ighalo. let the coach advice or point it out to him
Be like you remember that world cup goal.

Ighalo has physical presence. That alone makes two defenders mark only him all the time.Its all about getting a man advantage.

He is a decoy, he takes the attention away from the real scorers. Football is a chess game as well.

Have you noticed that Ahmed Musa is being unselfish the but the problem is he passes the ball to ighalo who either waste it or the ball is passed to no one in particular

Please let someone tell the coaching crew this

It's about his decision making when in the box, it was terrible

Yet he (Ighalo) is still the joint top scorer with Mane

EditLord:
I watched the Nigeria South Africa match and I was a little confused as to why Musa was subbed when there's high chance that we might head into extra time. He gave that South African defence some troubles, same as Chukwueze.
The problem is our number 9 lacks positioning. Ighalo was nowhere to be found when Musa crosses.

Meanwhile, please I need someone to help me with business plan on photography. I need to submit it urgently, abeg make una help me

The problem with most of you is that you think of football in terms of Play Station games. Ighalo is not Musa's problem. Musa's problem is that his crosses and passes lack accuracy!

Wing play is not merely a matter of running down the flank and putting in any sort of cross at all. The crosses must be accurate or at least dangerous. Time and time again Musa kept kicking the ball without any forseeable accuracy and that is why the coach had to remove him and put on Simon in the last game.
wat did simon do?

How does what you wrote invalidate what I wrote? I spoke of Ighalo and you are here speaking of Musa the reason why Ighalo cannot make good movement off the ball?

Ahmed musa would see a nice opportunity for a shot, instead he'll pass the ball to that lazy ighalo, that wouldn't know what to do with the ball.. Ighalo would have easily been the highest goal scorer in this competition if his conversion rate is 3/10 sef..

But no shaken we go still win! Na God dey fight for Lazy man smiley

cheesy uno serious
is God lazy?

That's why I said most of you think of football in terms of playstation games.

He won at least two corners in the short space of time he was on the pitch and we scored from...one of them!

oh and BTW he took the corner. And that last time Nigeria scored from a corner guess who took it? Simon.

So in real terms, Simon was far more impactful but to you Musa was better because he was dribbling.

Ighalo is really a poor finisher. His movement in the box is really poor.
ighalo did very well against cameroon and south africa to assist play ad good movement off the ball

Your second sentence is the answer to your first. Ighalo's movement is generally just fine whereas Miss is generally not accurate enough with his crossing and passing.

If you don't even have a good memory of the game there is no point having this talk. Simon took on the right back three times and beat him on the third try and then crossed low which was blocked by a central defender.

Note I never said Simon is a more skilful footballer, but he is better at making those passes and crosses. Simple! Or is it not that simple?
Re: AFCON: Ahmed Musa's Unselfishness Is Causing Us Problems by Sufgriw(m): 5:17pm On Jul 12
I agree with you
But don't forget that he's a leader
So he's doing that to maintain he's captain

Musa football IQ is low.
Running like headless chicken.

I hope Tyrone ebuehi get back so we can try him there if the coach is smart.

He is a right back defender but knows how to use the ball.

Apparently, Nigerians can't be satisfied.
If you're this, they complain. If you're that, they react.

Why blame Ighalo? Most of you like football but you don't really understand the game.
We don't commit men forward when attacking, Ighalo most times is isolated in the opponents box all by himself, surrounded by 3 or 4 defenders and you know how physical African football is.... So what do you want him to do?
He has even tried in scoring 3 goals already in this competition.....do you think it is easy? You should have blamed the coach for taking only Ighalo as a striker for this tournament, because I can't really count Onuachu cos he doesn't know how to make use of his legs.
But as it is now, the deed has been done, and the only thing we should be talking about now is upping the way we mark because the Algerian play like the Europeans and they are a high pressing team.
