Former Nigerian International, Peter Ijeh has faulted the rational behind Odion Jude Ighalo’s invite back to the Super Eagles squad . 

Head Coach Gernot Rohr handed striker Odion Ighalo a recall to the Super Eagles squad billed to tackle the closing Group C games of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 African race against Liberia and Cape Verde this month.

The Al Shabab (Saudi Arabia) striker announced his retirement from the international game following the 2019 AFCON in Egypt.

” I still don’t understand why they brought back   Ighalo, Ijeh told Ojbsport.com correspondent, Kenny Bamidele.  

“of course Ighalo is a good player no doubt but at this point we should try to project the young  ones we have from the top five best European leagues”

When he was asked to give his opinion why he thinks  Players who performed well for their respective clubs struggle to do well in the National team he said.

The Super Eagles at is it now is not structured well, players responsibilities and duties are not well defined, each and every player needs to know his responsibilities “


The Super Eagles will tackle the Lone Star of Liberia at the Grand Stade Tangier in Morocco on Saturday, 13th November and then fly into Lagos for the final group game against Cape Verde’s Blue Sharks at the Teslim Balogun Stadium on Tuesday, 16th November.

Top of their group with nine points but hotly chased by seven-pointer Cape Verde who host Central African Republic on the island of Mindelo, the Eagles need the three points against the Lone Star on the neutral turf of Morocco’s principal northern city to remain on firm ground when hosting the Blue Sharks three days later in Nigeria’s commercial and industrial capital, Lagos State .
