The Lagos-born footballer had worn the number 9 jersey until his retirement from the Super Eagles in July 2019 shortly after winning the top scorer award at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Nigerians have since been clamouring for his return to the national team, with his recent success at Manchester United adding voice to the calls.

Ighalo made his full debut for the Super Eagles in a friendly against Uganda in March 2015.

He has a total of 34 caps and 15 goals for the national team.
