Ighalo: I was shocked when I received my first Eagles’ call-up

Manchester United striker Odion Ighalo has confessed that he did not envisage that he would be called up to the Super Eagles for their international friendlies against Uganda and South Africa back in 2015 because he was playing for a Championship team, Watford. Despite playing in the strongest league in the world, La Liga for three consecutive seasons, Ighalo was consistently overlooked for national team selection until his move to Watford, where his outstanding performances put him in the spotlight. “Why I didn’t believe then is because I played three years in the Spanish La Liga with big boys, I wasn’t invited to the national team,” Ighalo said to Offline Utmostt Review.
