Ighalo Puts Super Eagles’ Qatar 2022 Qualification In God’s Hands


Al-Hilal of Saudi Arabia striker, Odion Jude Ighalo has disclosed that he is putting Nigeria’s hopes of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar in the hands of God, megasportsarena.com reports.

He stated as much ahead of the Eagles’ decisive clash with Ghana’s Black Stars in the second leg of their qualification play-off, as the striker stressed that he trusts God to give his side victory.

That would seal the ticket to Qatar 2022 for the Eagles, who Ighalo rejoined at the start of this year, two years after his initial retirement from national team duty.

He is one of ten players in the current roll call of 25 in the Eagles’ camp that were at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, such that going to Qatar would be a boost for kids like Calvin Bassey, Akinkumi Amoo, Victor Osimhen and Samuel Chukwueze.

However, Ighalo, who did not play during the first leg tie at Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi, Ghana, concluded that the Eagles must perform at their optimum level on Tuesday, in order to convert chances that come their way.

Ighalo told NFF TV: “I know what it is and I’m looking forward by God’s grace to go to another one again

“Home advantage for us but we are not going to go to sleep because it’s going to be a difficult and tough game.

“Ghana are going to come all out here because they have nothing to lose now than to come out because we’re playing home.

“We just have to give our best 110 percent in the game on Tuesday, take our chances, fight from the start to finish till the final whistle.

“I know by God’s grace we’re going to come out victorious but we have to work hard, it’s going to be tough one but we’re going to win by God’s grace.”
