Ighalo's Ex-Teammate Warns Iceland : Eagles No 9. Is Strong, Fast & Scores Goals
Odion Ighalo's former teammate at Lyn Oslo, Indriði Sigurðsson, has given Iceland a lowdown on the Super Eagles number nine ahead of the World Cup clash between the two countries in Volgograd on Friday.

For two years, 2007 and 2008, Ighalo and Sigurðssonp played for the same club in Norway and the former Iceland international defender has described Ighalo as a powerful and pacy striker with a good shot.

''He is very strong and fast, at least when I played with him,"  said Indriði to Fotbolti.net.

"This is a good boy and no confusion. He is a Christian boy and was always smiling and positive, always smiling and likes dancing like many Nigerians I've played with. He's very good at football."

He continued : ''He has scored in all the places he has played. Of course,one should be worried about him, but we were also worried about Messi."

"Ighalo has a nice shot, you always think he's going to shoot and he pretends, it was at least that way when I played with him."

Odion Ighalo was preferred ahead of Kelechi Iheanacho, Simeon Nwankwo and Ahmed Musa to lead the attack in Nigeria's 2-0 loss to Croatia.
