Ighalo speaks on making u-turn on Super Eagles’ retirement

Nigeria striker, Odion Ighalo, has insisted he will not make a u-turn over his decision to retire from international football.

This follows an attempt by President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, to persuade him to change his mind.

“It is not true that I have reversed my decision.

“The (NFF) president spoke to me and asked me to reconsider. Out of respect for him, I said I would think about it. I consulted with my family and we decided that the best thing for me now is to stand by the decision.

“I love my country and it was not an easy decision to make. But I believe the time is right. I am now out for eight weeks and my club are not happy about it, but I thank God for everything,” Ighalo told ColinUdoh.com

The 30-year-old signs out on a high, after winning the Golden Boot at the just concluded 2019 Africa Cup of Nations with five goals.

Ighalo played 35 games for Nigeria in total and netted 16 times.

He ranks as the seventh all-time highest goalscorer in the national team history.
