Will Super Eagles miss Mikel and Ighalo?

Gatafe player Etebo has revealed that the members of the national team are still shocked over the retirement of the most senior players in the team.

John Obi Mikel and Odion Ighalo remain a big miss for Nigeria, concedes Oghenekaro Etebo, with the Super Eagles still coming to terms with their retirement.

After the Super Eagles clinched third-place at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, the duo drew the curtains on their international careers.

Mikel, 32, was the first to bow out before  Egypt 2019 top scorer Ighalo followed the path of the former Chelsea star.

They helped the team make vital decisions during tough times and I guess it was just time for them to move on.

“Ighalo on his part is a goal poacher that we also miss but thank God that we have another goal poacher in [Victor] Osimhen, but we have to be patient with him to settle in well into that role.”

After the coronavirus pandemic, Rohr is expected to begin life without the retired players as Nigeria would be hoping to qualify for the 2021 Afcon billed for Cameroon..
