Former Nigerian striker, Julius Aghahowa has disclosed that the absence of Odion Ighalo and Victor Osimhen remain a big blow to the Super Eagles at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

Aghahowa stated this in an interview with Brila FM, where he expressed disappointment with the absence of the two strikers from the showpiece.

Recall that Ighalo, whose Saudi Arabian club Al Shabab, did not permit his participation in the AFCON 2021, joins fellow striker, Osimhen to miss the competition.

The former Shakhtar Donetsk star, who was Nigeria’s top goalscorer at the 2002 African Nations Cup, also noted that the duo of Taiwo Awoniyi and Sadiq Umar should utilise the chance at their disposal in Cameroon.
