Nigeria’s technical adviser, Gernot Rohr has revealed he will not risk Odion Ighalo against Cameroon, unless he is fully fit.
The former Watford striker was on the score sheet in the 4-0 thrashing of Cameroon in Uyo, before he was replaced by Iheanacho, after he was stretchered off.
Gernot Rohr says he has options on the bench to replace his talisman , but could play him, if he is fit enough.
“If Ighalo cannot play, we will decide at the last moment,” Rohr told media.
“We have two possibilities; we have Kelechi [Iheanacho] and we have Anthony [Nwakaeme]. So we two centre forwards who are ready to play for him.
“I will like to use the same but there is a little question about Ighalo and his leg, so we can’t afford to take any risk.
“The possibility is to bring players but that will be decided [on Tuesday morning].”
