Libya vs Nigeria: Ikpeba applauds Ighalo for sterling display

Inform Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo has received encomium from former  Eagles’ forward Victor Ikpeba for his sterling performance against the Libyans on Tuesday in the return leg of the AFCON qualifiers.

Ikpeba said: “Football is full of ups and downs, nobody could have predicted Ighalo to score a hat trick and score in Tunisia. For me, it is very good for him.

“I think Ighalo deserves all commendation and should be encouraged to do more instead of castigating the player. He is a greater player and can only get better.”

He also pleaded with the media to be consistent and adopt constructive criticism in their reportage. “Some reports sticks to your head and the feelings lives with you all your lives. It is not every time you score a hat trick in football, especially the level in which football is now, doing it in Nigeria colour I’m proud of it. This is a statistics we should share with the younger ones”.
