Afcon 2019: Ighalo will start against Guinea, Gernot Rohr confirms

Following his match-winning heroics against Burundi, the China based forward is set to start for the Super Eagles on Wednesday
Odion Ighalo is fit enough to start for Nigeria in Wednesday’s Africa Cup of Nations clash against Guinea.

Head coach Gernot Rohr confirmed that the 30-year-old has recovered sufficiently from the muscle injury suffered while on duty for Shanghai Shenhua.

The knock subsequently robbed him of a starting place against Burundi – although he made an instant impact in the encounter as a substitute where he got Nigeria’s lone strike.

Ahead of the important clash with the National Elephants, Rohr disclosed he will start against Paul Put's side as the three-time African champions eye victory to qualify from Group B.

“Definitely, Ighalo is very fit and he will start the game against Guinea,” Rohr told media at the Alexandria Stadium.
