Aiyegbeni names best striker in Super Eagles squad ahead of AFCON 2019

Ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, former striker, Yakubu Aiyegbeni, has named Odion Ighalo as the best striker in the current squad.

Gernot Rohr handed Paul Onuachi his debut against Egypt in an international friendly in March and the lanky forward hit the winner in the first minute of the game.

Rohr has also handed opportunities to Victor Osimhen and Isaac Success to lead the attack, but Aiyegbeni believes Ighalo’s wealth of experience in the team and his current rich vein of form give him an edge above them all.

“If Ighalo continues scoring this way it will be very difficult for him to be benched.

“He’s (Ighalo) is the Super Eagles best striker at the moment, no doubt.

“They have good strikers coming into the team at the moment – the likes of Osimhen, Onuachu and the likes, but he (Ighalo) possesses everything you need in a striker to get the goals.

“He’s experienced, matured and prolific.

“Osimhen is another player who could fill the void in his absence, but with decent supplies Ighalo will deliver,” Yakubu told Completesports.
