PLAYER SPOTLIGHT: ODION IGHALO – ROHR TO OVERLOOK HIM FRIENDLIES

News coming from Nigeria is that the Super eagles coach Gernot Rohr is considering dropping the China-based striker Odion Ighalo from the squad in their upcoming friendly games.

Rohr is also considering leaving the skipper John Obi Mikel out of the games as they are still in pre-season training with their Chinese sides.

The coach believes the timing of the friendly games coincides with when the league will resume in China and will allow them to focus at club level.

Mikel has been in fine form for his Chinese side Tianjin Teda, the same can be said about Ighalo, who has scored three goals so far in pre-season games for Yatai Chanchun.
