Super Eagles handler, Gernot Rohr says Odion Ighalo has justified his selection to the team with his performance in Saturdays 4-0 win over Libya. 



The Changchun Yatai striker bagged a hattrick as the 3-time African champions beat the Mediterranean Knights 4-0 in Uyo to brighten their chances of qualifying for next year's Afcon in Cameroon. 


Speaking after the game, the Franco-German tactician believes the forward has answered his critics appropriately:

MEANWHILE....


Super Eagles defender, Shehu Abdullahi won’t play a part in tomorrow’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture against Libya in Sfax, Tunisia due to injury.


Abdullahi picked up the injury in the early part of the Super Eagles 4-0 win against the Mediterranean Knights at the Akwa Ibom International Stadium, Uyo on Saturday and was replaced by Ola Aina.


The Bursaspor player also missed the match against Seychelles as a result of injury.


He joins Trabzonspor midfielder, Ogenyi Onazi who sustained an Achilles injury in training last Thursday on the injury list ahead of the game, with the duo not expected to travel with the team to Tunisia for the game.
