Odion Ighalo moved to Shabab of Saudi Arabia from Manchester United. He currently on 8 goals in 9 appearances for the Saudi Arabian club
Before his retirement, he scored 16 goals in 35 games for the Super Eagles.
The Super Head Coach Gernot Rohr, said that Al-Shabab striker, Odion Ighalo, is in his provisional squad for their 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Cape Verde and Liberia.
The Super Eagles will play the Liberia and the Cape Verde in their final group qualifying games of the group C.
Rohr says he decided to recall Ighalo because of his leadership, although it is still left for the 32-year-old to accept the invitation.
“I put him in the bigger provisional first list for the next games.
“He is doing very well at his club, and he still has the ambition to help his country. Because we miss his leadership, we miss his experience. We miss the goals he scores.
“He was the best scorer at the AFCON, the best scorer during the qualifiers, and I think we have so many young players, and they could learn a lot on the side of such a great player.
“Ighalo is a very important man. I hope that he can come back,” Rohr said in a Q&A on Elegbete TV.
