Former Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo, has predicted that Morocco has what it takes to oust Portugal in today’s round of 16 of the 2022 World Cup.
Recall that the Atlas Lions became the fourth African team to reach the Quarter Finals of the World Cup after Cameroon (1990), Senegal (2002) and Ghana (2010).
However, Ighalo in a chat with The Athletic stated that he’s optimistic Morocco can stun Portugal.
Against Portugal (in the last eight) it’s going to be tough but in football, anything can happen,” Ighalo told The Athletic.
“Names don’t play football — if you work hard and give everything on the field you have every chance to get through, so one mistake could cost any team. So I wish
“Morocco all the best, but as an African, I hope the best side wins.”Copyright © 2022 Completesports.com All rights reserved. The information contained in Completesports.com may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed without the prior written authority of Completesports.com.
