Current handler of the team, Samson Siasia is yet to announce the name of overage players for the Country’s seventh appearance at the games but making a case for Ighalo, Eguavoen said the 26-year-old possessed the singular quality to help a team win games.

He described the Watford FC forward as a power player with the requisite physical attributes to succeed at the games and because Nigeria needs him to be there.
