Oliseh salutes Iheanacho, Ighalo

14 September 2015, 14:29

Abuja - Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has congratulated the duo of Kelechi Iheanacho and Jude Odion Ighalo after they both scored for Manchester City and Watford respectively.

Iheanacho came off the bench for Manchester City in the closing stages of their English Premier League game against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park to score what proved the winner, as he helped preserve City's perfect start to the season.

The strike was his first in competitive fixtures for City, after only previously making two substitute appearances for the former English champions.

Meanwhile, Ighalo scored his second of the season for Watford as they soiled Swansea's good start to the season, and helped the Hornets to their first win on their return to the Premier League.

And Oliseh, who surprisingly left out Ighalo from his team that drew 0-0 against Tanzania in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier earlier this month, has gone on to salute the 26-year old, as well as his younger compatriot.

"Congrats to Odion Ighalo as his goal gives Watford all 3 Points over Swansea," Oliseh tweeted on Ighalo's goal.

"Kudos to Kelechi Iheanacho for his goal that gives Man. City the much needed 3 points," Oliseh also tweeted in recognition of Iheanacho's goal.

Oliseh, however, hinted that Iheanacho is still one for the future, but admitted he could also make the Super Eagles team soon.

"I do admit though that it feels good to have credible options 4 D future (sic), tomorrow na the future too (tomorrow is the future too)," Oliseh added.
