AFCON 2022 Qualifiers: Odion Ighalo Gatecrashes Super Eagles Camp In Lagos

LAGOS MARCH 25TH (NEWSRANGERS)-Former first choice striker of the senior national team of Nigeria Odion Ighalo paid a surprise visit to the team earlier on Thursday at their AFCON 2022 training camp.

Olakanlo Tosin who is with the team at their Lagos camp posted a picture of the former Manchester United striker who retired from the team in 2019 after finishing as top scorer at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Although coach of the team Gernot Rohr says he is opened to the idea of having the Al Shabab of Saudi Arabia striker back in the team, his visit to the camp  has nothing to do with a return to the team.

Ighalo had lunch with the team and left few minutes before they head out for their evening training session ahead of the game against Benin Republic on Saturday.

Following his retirement, Victor Osimhen has stepped up to the role of first choice striker of the team and will be saddled with the responsibility of getting the goals on Saturday.
