Ighalo inspires young Super Eagles to aspire for World Cup Qualification


Super Eagles forward, Odion Ighalo says he has highlighted the importance of playing in the World Cup to the younger players in the team.

A veteran of one World Cup, Ighalo believes the desire to attend a first mundial has to fuel the younger generation when called up, hence propelling 110 percent effort in the team.


“I try to talk to the younger guys that haven’t been there before, that this is an opportunity to go to Qatar 2022 because you won’t know how it feels now until after your football career then you’ll understand what it means to play in the world cup,” Ighalo spoke ahead of the second leg World Cup play-off against Ghana.
“I’ve been there before I know what it takes and I’m looking forward to doing it again by God’s grace.”
The first leg ended goalless and the tie will be decided at the MKO Abiola Stadium in the return leg Today.
