The Chinese Super League striker stunned Nigerians when he declared his retirement from the national group, following the Super Eagles win against Tunisia in the third-place match at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

After defeating Tunisia, Super Eagles chief, Gernot Rohr revealed the previous Watford man has resigned from the national group.

“He has been very strong for us,” Rohr told ESPN. “And it is sad, that he wants not to continue. But the door always is open for him any time.”

Days later, the former watford striker announced his retirement from the Super Eagles.

However, NFF President, Amaju Pinnick reacted to this announcement taking steps to ensure the striker turns around his decision.

Reacting to Amaju Pinnick’s statement, Odion Ighalo expressed that he is still considering his options.

“If I am going to reverse my retirement, I would need to consult with my family and my club. I respect the president of the NFF, but the reversal of my retirement is certainly not one that I can take alone. I need to consult with others before I take a decision.”

It currently appears he has settled on a choice after he posted an image of him with the Super Eagles on twitter with an enigmatic subtitle, saying “Coming Back Stronger.”

Ighalo’s coming back to the international scene will be an immense lift for Rohr and the Super Eagles who start their qualifiers for 2021 AFCON in November.
