Super Eagle’s coach Genort Rohr has expressed his delight towards Odion Ighalo in his post-match press conference, after Seychelles game. The Nigerian team defeated the host country with Ahmed Musa, Kalu and Odion Ighalo all on target in the encounter to seal a 3-0 victory.
The Changchun Yatai hitman scored the last goal in the game against The Pirates, as he ended his goal scoring drought with the National team which have lasted for a while.
Ighalo’s position in the team have come under scrutiny, despite being in superb form for Changchun Yatai in the Chinese Super league following a below par World cup outing. His horror show volley and the One-on-One miss against the Abiceleste in the World cup still rings in the mind of supporters.
However, the former Udinese, Julius Berger and Watford center forward was on target from the spot at Stade Linite to ease pressure off himself as well as to repay the faith placed in him by Eagle’s coach following a disappointing World cup.
Genort Rohr in his press statement with Footballive.ng said: “I’m happy that Odion Ighalo scored for us from the penalty spot”. “On the whole, am happy with the performance of the boys.”
Super Eagles currently third in the standings with 3 points prepares for Libya clash which will certainly make or mar their ambitions.
