Ighalo to miss AFCON clash against S’Africa (See why here)


Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo has been ruled out of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualification game against South Africa.

Ighalo sustained a hamstring injury in Changchun Yatai’s game against Tianjin Quianjian on Wednesday.

The five-goal hero in the two-legged AFCON qualification games against Libya in October was stretchered off the pitch in the 16th minute.

Ighalo disclosed that it’s a hamstring injury.

“I pulled my hamstring,” Ighalo said.

The extent of his hamstring will be determined after a scan which will be carried out later.

The Super Eagles will take on the Bafana Bafana on November 17 in Johannesburg.

It takes up to three weeks for a player to recover from a hamstring injury.
