It was a moment of excitement as Saudi Arabia-based striker, Odion Ighalo finally teamed up with the squad at the Super Eagles camp in Tangier, Morocco yesterday ahead of tomorrow’s FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 qualifying match against the Lone Star of Liberia.
“I am happy to be able to make it here. Good to be back with the group and the spirit is excellent,” Ighalo told newsmen yesterday.
All 24 players invited by Head Coach Gernot Rohr have arrived in Tangier and trained on Thursday.
Captain Ahmed Musa, Victor Osimhen and Kelechi Iheanacho delighted the technical and administrative staff under mild weather in Morocco’s principal northern city.
According to the Head Coach, “It’s a good feeling here and we hope the weather stays nice as it has been since we got here. Everything is calm and the team has been able to concentrate very well.”
It wasn’t only Ighalo that brought vibrancy to the team, midfielders Wilfred Ndidi and Alex Iwobi, and forward Samuel Chukwueze also dazzled at training.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
