Ighalo Hails Fantastic Osimhen After Impressive Showing Vs Lesotho


Former Super Eagles forward Odion Ighalo has showered encomium on Victor Osimhen following his superlative showing in Sunday’s 4-2 away win against the Crocodiles of Lesotho, reports Completesports.com.

Osimhen scored twice and recorded two assists as the Super Eagles rallied back to win the game after conceding early.

The Lille of France forward has now scored four goals in his last four appearance for the three-time African champions.


“I always told him that he has everything it takes to lead this attack, but it all depends on him,” Ighalo told ESPN after the game against Lesotho.

“I told him he has to keep working hard, stay humble and always be ready to learn, and above all not to get carried away with success or hype but just to keep improving.”

    Thank you so much Mr. Ighalo for your brotherly advice, love and prayer for Osimeh.

    However, we should go back and reviewing this year Afcon why Nigeria failed to win that tournament.

    The greediness of our coach making us to lose the fourth trophy I Egypt this year. The coach over used you in that tournament Ighalo. If not you were injured, Osimeh wouldn’t have played in that tournament.

    Osimeh and Onyekuru would have been his secret weapons while Ighalo would have been his main engine that is what I called “digital” but for sure, it’s going to take a while for NFF to switch from analog to digital.

    I like your personality Ighalo but quite unlucky that your style of play doesn’t fit in, in the national team and on the other hand, you managed to accomplished one thing that no one can taking away from you, highest goals scorer of Afcon. I’m so happy for you.

    There’s a lesson in this for us all.
    No matter how people criticized you, move very closer to God, don’t lose your target, focus, vision and your humanity.

    As we can see, now matter how they called me sorts of names on this forum, I never lost my cool because that the only way I can achieve my goal and my main goal is to helping the coach to build a solid team for Nigeria.

    As it is now, I have provided the coach fantastic players and by God’s grace, more still coming if the coach ready to listen to we patriotic Nigerians. We have to work together to make our Country great.

    Mr. Ighalo is helping Osimeh while we patriotic Nigerians are helping coach Rohr to build a sound team for our nation. I have said my own. A word is enough for the wise. God bless Nigeria!!!
