Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has said Odion Ighalo did not play against Liberia, because he arrived late to camp.
Ighalo is back in the Nigeria national team almost three years after he decided to end his international career.
Nigeria beat Liberia 2-0 last weekend, thanks to goals from the penalty spot from Victor Osimhen and Ahmed Musa.
“He only arrived on Thursday, that is why he could not participate in this match,” Rohr said in his post-match conference via the Super Eagles social media page.
“But I hope the next match, he will be able to help us much more.”
