AFCON: I can’t be there – Ighalo breaks silence after pulling out of Nigerian squad
Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo, has wished the team well ahead of their first game against Cameroon on Tuesday.
Ighalo said although he cannot be with the team, he believes there are already enough talents to take Nigeria to the final.

The former Watford striker charged the Super Eagles to go all out and make the nation proud in his absence, while calling on Nigerians to keep praying for the team.
He told NFF TV, “My name is Odion Jude Ighalo, here is me wishing the Super Eagles all the very best in the Africa Cup of Nations tournament.
“Sorry I cannot be there. I am supporting the boys all the way, we need prayers from Nigerians to support the team, to back them because with their prayers and support the team will make Nigeria proud.
“Go boys and make us proud, you guys can do it. We have enough talents in that team that can take us to the final. God bless you guys.”
