Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr is right now in serious confusion as his top striker Odion Ighalo was stretched off 10 minutes into Shanghai Shenhua’s 1-1 draw away at Tianjin Teda.
Ighalo is now a potential AFCON headache for Rohr ahead of the Africa Nations Cup tournament to be held in Egypt in June.
The 29-year-old started his 9th league game for the visitors but was replaced in the 12th minute by Yizhen Wu with his side already 1-0 down.
The former Watford of England forward topped the AFCON qualification series with 7 goals and will no doubt be a major threat at the AFCON in Egypt following his impressive start to life with Shanghai.
Rohr is now seriously praying that Ighalo’s injury is nothing too serious with the Nations Cup in Egypt just less than 40 days.
