Ex international, Waidi Akanni has called on Nigerians to absolve Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo of any blame for Nigeria’s ouster at the World Cup in Russia.
Ighalo who missed two glaring chances to put Nigeria ahead in the second half against Argentina, have been condemned by Nigerians for the team’s defeat.
But then, Akanni told Talkingpoint360.com that Ighalo should be forgiven for disappointing Nigerians.
“Most Nigerians have been putting huge blame on Odion Ighalo for those two gifted chances which could have sent Nigeria to the knockout stages of the World Cup against Argentina.
“Nigerians should find a place in their heart to forgive Ighalo because every striker is bound to have a bad day in office.
