Odion Ighalo, striker for the Super Eagles of Nigeria, has apologized to Nigerians for missing the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

Ighalo was named to the Super Eagles’ final 28-man squad, but his club, Al Shabab, refused to release him, claiming that his call-up from the Nigeria Football Federation arrived after the deadline, despite reports that Ighalo promised the club he would retire from international football before signing with them.

The tournament began on Sunday, January 9, and Nigeria will face Egypt on Tuesday, January 11.

On Monday, January 10, Ighalo confirmed his absence from the Eagles squad and apologized to Nigerians for missing the tournament in a video posted on the Super Eagles Instagram account.

“Greetings, my name is Odion Jude Ighalo.” Here’s wishing the Super Eagles the best of luck in the AFCON tournament.

“I’m sorry I can’t be there, but I’m rooting for the boys all the way; we need Nigerians to pray for the team, to back them up, because with their prayers and support, the team will make Nigeria proud.”

“Go boys and make us proud, you guys can do it we have enough talent in that team that can take us to the final. God bless you guys.“
