I am actually looking forward to Mikel Obi’s reaction. I’m sure he was shocked and disappointed as well. Watford/Nigeria forward has vented his disappointment at not being picked by Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh for Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier game against Tanzania coming up in September.
Speaking to African Football, Ighalo said, “I am a little bit disappointed not to be in the list, but I am taking it in good faith. Nigeria is blessed with talents. I think the coach is rebuilding, maybe I am not in his plan for now. May be he will call me in future.”
