The former Nigeria international believes the Shanghai Shenhua loanee’s fine form at Old Trafford merits getting him back into the national team
The 30-year has been in scintillating form since joining the Red Devils on loan from Shanghai Shehua on deadline day in January, scoring and assisting in Austria to take his tally to four goals and one assist in eight matches.
Calls for Ighalo to return to the national team has been rife recently, where he called time on his career after finishing as top scorer at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt with five goals and an overall international tally of 16 goals in 35 appearances.

“With his kind of form, it won’t be a crime to drag Odion Ighalo back to the Super Eagles. Well done,” Adepoju posted on Twitter.
Ighalo is yet to find the back of the net in the Premier League in four appearances for his new club but will hope to do so when the Red Devils travel to London to face Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
