Ighalo’s Return To Eagles, Poor Timing
November, 18 2021.
When the President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick mentioned the possibility of Odion Jude Ighalo making a return to the Super Eagles, many took it as a mere word to challenge the firepower in Eagles attack not until he was invited.
Knowing fully well that crucial and sensitive matches are ahead of the senior national team, it was a blatant mistake inviting Ighalo who according to Coach Gernot Rohr was yet to find his rhythm.
Despite Agitations centred on bringing in a player who is in his right frame of mind, psychology fit and playing top flight football week-in week-out to partner Osimhen in the national team.
It's quite disheartening to know that Gernot Rohr has really displayed high degree of tactical deficiencies in his tactical approaches, in the last two qualifying matches the Super Eagles played.
