Odion Ighalo remains Nigeria’s best striker – Aiyegbeni
Former Super Eagles player, Yakubu Aiyegbeni has stated that Odion Ighalo is still the best striker the current squad has for now. Aiyegbeni made this known while expressing delight at the influx of quality strikers into the Super Eagles squad.
One of such strikers is Paul Onuachi who was given his debut by Gernot Rohr against Egypt which saw him secure a goal. Speaking about the quality of strikers, Aiyegbeni said:
“If Ighalo continues scoring this way , it will be very difficult for him to be benched, ” Yakubu told Completesports . com .
“He ’ s the Super Eagles’ best striker at the moment, no doubt . They have good strikers coming into the team – the likes of Osimhen and Onuachu , but he ( Ighalo ) possesses everything you need in a striker to get the goals . He ’ s experienced , matured and prolific .
“Osimhen is another player who could fill the void in his absence , but with decent supplies , Ighalo will deliver . ”
