Rohr: We Will Not Risk Ighalo Against Cameroon

share on:

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].”
