Afcon:Ighalo plays down Super Eagles goal drought

June 13th, 2019

Super Eagles forward Odion Ighalo has asserted that the senior national team strikers are not suffering from a goal drought ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, after they were held to a goalless draw by less fancied Zimbabwe in a friendly game in Asaba.

The Eagles produced an insipid performance against Zimbabwe, but Ighalo has come out to defence of his team, while adding that Nigeria will hit their strides in Egypt before their first game with Burundi in Alexandria on June 22.

The Shanghai Shenhua attacker noted that his teammates who featured in the rain-drenched game gave their all, but that the weather conditions at the time was not favourable and that the pitch was equally unplayable.
