Ighalo set for Super Eagles return

Al Shabab striker, Odion Ighalo, looks likely to return to the Nigeria national team.

Ighalo announced his retirement in 2019, after he emerged top scorer at the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

However, according to the President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, 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.
