Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has said the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Seychelles is a perfect time for Odion Ighalo to prove himself.
Ighalo came under severe criticism following his below par showing at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, where the team crashed out after playing three matches.
However, Rohr kept faith with the Changchun Yatai man as he included him in the 24-man team for the clash next month.
Speaking in Lagos on Friday, the Germ.an gaffer said the former Watford man needs to prove critics wrong when the game takes place.
Ighalo has been impressive for his Chinese Super League side this term as he has bagged 14 goals, making him a joint-top scorer.
