Just two months away from the next AFCON, the 32 years old former Watford star is set to return back to the national team ahead of next International break.
Although, the news doesn’t go well with former Super Eagles star Mutiu Adepoju, claimed Ighalo’s return could hurt the growth of Victor Osimhen and Taiwo Awoniyi who were in that position.
I like Ighalo as a player, he is a very good striker. He retired from the Super Eagles two years, so, if he is recalled to do what the strikers in the team are doing, well, I don’t know the reason for that,” Adepoju said.
“We have (Victor) Osimhen scoring very well for his club, we have Kelechi Iheanacho, Taiwo Awoniyi and so many of them.
If we have players who are doing very well and scoring goals in their clubs, do we still have to recall Ighalo? It’s just my opinion.”
