John Obi Mikel and Odion Ighalo will be good inclusions in Nigeria’s final squad for the Rio Olympics ex-Super Eagles and U-23 national team coach Austin Eguavoen has suggested.
Eguavoen who could not qualify Nigeria for the 2012 London Olympics said the country will need to aggregate her best players if the country hopes to do well in the men’s football event showdown in Rio.
“I think the duo of Ighalo and Mikel should be added to that team, we need our best legs in Brazil and Siasia is very aware of that” Eguavoen submitted.
While Siasia has declared that he already he knows who he want as overage players, it is ye to be seen if Mikel and Ighalo are in his plan.
Before now, Fcnaija had exclusively revealed last week that the likes of Kenneth Omeruo, Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho have already been included in the original list drawn up by Siasia.
Nigeria is in Group B of the men’s football event where they are pitched alongside the trio of Sweden, Japan and Colombia.
