Gernot Rohr, the head coach of the Super Eagles, has chosen a 24-man roster for their upcoming 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Liberia and Cape Verde.
Odion Ighalo of Al Shabab has been included in Rohr’s squad.
After the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, Ighalo announced his retirement from international football.
Nigeria will play Liberia in their penultimate Group C match in Morocco on November 13 before hosting Cape Verde three days later in Lagos.
The three-time African champions lead Group C with nine points from four games, followed by Cape Verde in second place with seven points, the Central African Republic in third place with four points, and Liberia in fourth place with three points.
The Super Eagles hope to move to the World Cup third qualifying round, when the winners of the ten groups will compete in home-and-away matches for the remaining five tickets assigned to Africa for Qatar 2022.
