Odion Ighalo To Return To Super Eagles by Irukkanews: 5:01pm On Oct 26, 2021
Odion Ighalo is set for a shock return to the Super Eagles squad ahead of next month’s 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr is set to name the Al-Shabab striker in his squad for the clash against Cape Verde and Liberia next month.

President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, confirmed in a statement on Instagram that he has spoken to him recently about a possible return.

“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.

The ex-Watford striker retired from international duty after Nigeria’s third-place finish at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, where he finished as the top scorer with five goals.

cool

A welcome development. I personally feel he retired too early from the team. He should be given another chance considering his experience.

But why when we have Oshimen and Onuachu, Nigeria should move on from Ighalo once and for all

To do what? Are we lacking strikers? I hate recycling of old players. Talking of experience, who him experience epp If there's someone to recall let it be Vincent Enyeama. All these our goalkeepers no de give me peace of mind

This Pinnick is overdoing his nice guy stuff.

Ighalo's presence in the Super Eagles will mean the absence of one of those young strikers with promising future in the team.

We've seen the best of Ighalo. We've seen his peak. It's not the best we need in a striker for Super Eagles...

Rubbish.
We have red-hot Osimhen, Iheanacho dey, then there's Onuachu, Simy, Awoniyi, & co still waiting.

Why do we need an old man who is doing well in Saudi Arabia for God sake?

Kuku bring back Emenike and Yakubu.

If Nigeria with a population of over 200 million people with youths constituting a higher percentage can have 85 years old Buhari as president and 72 years old Osibanjo as vice president. There is nothing wrong with 42 years old ighalo playing for the super eagles, since we are all mad in this country.

Do we really need him? We have Kelechi Iheanacho, Victor Osimhien, Paul Onuachu, etc. Does it look like the Super Eagles are in dire need of a striker? Even if we need a striker, it's definitely not someone who has lost pace due to old age.

no way! we have many young and in form striker we don't need him osimhen,awoniyi,Denis,ounachu and kelechi so who is he going to bench among those guys? Hamed musa and igaloh have nothing to offer this current super Eagle,the only thing we need to do is to sack Rohr and look for a good coach and we are good to go.

Igahlo should enjoy is retirement in peace; we have enough potent, agile and young attackers.
The problem of super Eagle is managerial.

Re: Odion Ighalo To Return To Super Eagles by Charmingrascal(m): 6:01pm On Oct 26, 2021
Ighalo is one of my favorite super Eagles players but I don't think he can make any difference in this overrated team that we have at the moment.
We have big names in the team but with little effect.


Rohr is even confused about how to select our first xi, we have enough strikers I think they are not being used the way they should.
Something is wrong with Rohr's tactics
