Odion Ighalo set for a shock return to the Super Eagles

Odion Ighalo is expected to make a surprise return to the Super Eagles group ahead of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers next month. The Al-Shabab attacker is expected to be named in Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr’s squad for the upcoming matches against Cape Verde and Liberia.

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

“I had a long discussion with Odion Ighalo, and I believe we need more experience in our assault to complement our lively young Osimhen, Onuachu, Kelechi, and others.

“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.
