Odion Ighalo Retires From Super Eagles




Odion Ighalo retires from Super Eagles

Just a few hours after Mikel Obi announced his retirement, Odion Ighalo has followed suit to retire from the national team after a successful outing at the 2019 African Cup of Nations.

The Shanghai Shenhua striker had limped off in the 44th-minute of the third-place match against Tunisia on Wednesday, after scoring the only goal that gave the Super Eagles team the bronze medal.

Ighalo’s retirement is coming after he made his national team debut under Daniel Amokachi in 2015, and playing his first World Cup competition in 2018 in Russia. Sports journalist Osasuo reported that Ighalo agreed with Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr, not to make a public statement before the third-place playoffs with Tunisia.
