  • Hmmm rohr is somewhere now nodding his head in approval. If Rohr could invite and start a ahmed musa when he was in saudi Arabia, then he could do same with ighalo, especially now that osimhen is still trying to get back to goal scoring form. I just hope ighalo resists the temptation to come back to the National team. Let the younger generation take up the challenge.

    A good striker is always a striker where ever he finds himself but some would want the goal post to be shifted for them so that they can start scoring for their national team. You’ve proven to be a natural prolific striker. Scored for Watford, scored in China, scored for man u, scored for his national team and has started scoring in the Arabian league. What a prolific striker.

      A natural prolific goalscorer that was made redundant at Manchester United… He stays retired.

       
  • Oakfield you are so right: Ighalo indeed is a proven goals scorer.

    Congratulations to our own Odion Ighalo.

    Keep the fire burning.

    Please and please, don’t come and play for Nigeria.

    A word is enough for the wise. They were pushing Enyeama before the world cup in Russia but the smart and wise man turned his ears to the coaches, and NFF, he didn’t come back but the choice is yours Ighalo.

    I read a sports news that Ighalo and Akpeyi would be included in the list, hmm. If that happens, the current coaches can not build Nigeria anything.

    We have so many better players and goalies to choose from but why relying on Ighalo and Akpeyi? I have said a lot about the current coaches of the Super Eagles but no improvement.

    Since the coaches believed our young strikers and goalies are not good enough to win important matches for Nigeria unless Ighalo and Akpeyi stepped in, I think Nigeria wasted 4 years on the current Super Eagles team for nothing.

    All I can do from now on is to keep watching.

    Ighalo, please think twice before you come back into the team.

    I won’t say more than that. It is well. God bless Nigeria!!!

    Rohr have to feel good to see Ighalo is back to doing what he does best, scoring goals whenever given the opportunity. The choice of playing in Edo’s stadium has brought Victor Osimhen to his kneel which has currently left him less attractive in Napoli and that which has even make Ighalo more demanding for his return to Super Eagle. If Ighalo is given an opportunity again, he will deliver for Nigeria in Benin Republic next month.

    Abeg let all our players move to Saudi Arabian league since players from there are now better than the ones in the top 5 leagues. If Musa and Ighalo could get a call up playing in non fancied league, why are others playing in Serbia, Croatia, Bulgaria, Hungary getting call up. Hypocrisy all over the place

      Where are all the people foaming from two sides of the mouth about Top 5 league here… a criterion often used to justify why Rohr continues to ignore top talents like Olayinka and Dennis… Even Sadiq laced 17 goals and 17 assists in Serbia top division and was stilled overlooked, he is now doing so well yet Rohr continues to only say he is monitoring him and others alike. Yet a Panicky Rohr has gone to beg and drag Odion Ighalo from his peaceful retirement to come back and cover space for younger, and more hungry players. Most countries in Africa will pray to have certain crop of players doing well that our rigid coach continues to ignore. It’s the current situation of Ahmed Musa and Victor Osimhen(who needs to remain and optimize his levels at Napoli and not return to Nigeria with SE to risk another injury, which is pitching the call for Ighalo by Rohr) that will tell us if Rohr is a frightened coach or confident one… We know all the permutations and believe me, a political move by Rohr with lose him all our respects.

    A Spanish div two Umar is far far better than a Saudi Ighalo.
