Saudi-based Odion Ighalo not ready to return to Super Eagles

Super Eagles attacker, Odion Ighalo, has said he was not ready to return to the national team Super Eagles after the last attempt that failed to secure Nigeria a World Cup qualification.

After his outstanding performance at the AFCON 2019 and his team’s triumph against Tunisia in the third-place match, the Nigerian striker missed most of the Super Eagles’ fixtures from 2020 to 2022.

The attacker, however, returned to the team to face the black stars of Ghana, which he was on the bench in their away game in Ghana, and could only contribute for just 12 minutes in their defeat at the MKO Abiola stadium.

The Al Hilal striker has disclosed that Jose Peseiro, who succeeded Austin Eguavoen in May 2022, has messaged him to lure him back to the squad to bring his expertise to the team.

The striker admitted to Omasports TV that his return to the national team is uncertain, saying, “it’s a dicey I can’t imagine, but I’m a Nigerian I’ll still love to play for my country, but now I don’t think I want to do that, you know, even the new coach that came in messaged me, called me and all that. Said I should make a decision if I want to come back I said I would let him know.”
