  1. Both Victor Moses and Ighalo are no longer needed in the National Team right now. They have retired from Super Eagles and must respect their decision. They must respect themselves and carry on their football career with their respective clubs. Look at Ighalo's performance against Cape Verde - he was a shadow of himself. If Cape Verde had defeated Nigeria, who will be talking about retired players??? Such defeat would have rubbished Ighalo's achievement with Super Eagles forever as he will never have another opportunity to redeem his image. It seems they have forgotten about Nigerians anger after 2018 world cup. Ighalo failed to score against Argentina and send Nigeria to Quarter final for the first time at World Cup. They redeemed themselves at the Nation Cup with Bronze. Both players have done very well for Super Eagles but their time have passed. Right now, is Ighalo really better than any of the top 6 Super Eagles strikers (Victor Osimhen, Kelechi Iheanacho, Terem Moffin, Paul Onuachu, Sadiq Umar and Awoniyi). Is Victor really better than Chidera, Moses Simon, Samuel Chukwueze, Samuel Kalu and co. Are we going forward or backward? The National Team is a different scenerio from club football, where Ighalo had to wait until he came down to 4th in perking order before leaving Man U. It will be a HUGE disgrace for Victor and Ighalo to perform below the standard of these young Super Eagles. Instead of forcing Rohr to bring back old players NFF should organize a BIG Send-off party for Ighalo and Victor Moses.

    I beg to defer with you concerning the match against Argentina in the last World Cup.
    We lost that match & the opportunity to progress (if I'm not wrong), due to the ineptitude & lack of game plan by the coaching crew.
    We needed just a draw & we were at 1-1 but, we were still surging forward to score & instead of defending.
    So, please let's cut our players some slack.
    Gracias.
