2022 World Cup Qualifiers: Ighalo returns as Nigeria name 24 players for Liberia and Cape Verde games

 The 32-year-old has rescinded his decision to retire from international duty and he is available to feature for Gernot Rohr's team in the coming days

Nigeria have included Al Shabab striker Odion Ighalo in their 24-man squad for the 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Liberia and Cape Verde Islands later this month.

Ighalo retired from Super Eagles duty after the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt where he helped the West African country win bronze.

His return to Gernot Rohr’s squad is expected to boost their attacking options as they head into their final group games in the World Cup qualifiers before next year’s Afcon tournament in Cameroon.
