FIFA Club World Cup: Chelsea Boss Thomas Tuchel wary of Odion Ighalo

Odion Ighalo’s Al-Hilal is ready for the FIFA World Club Cup semifinal game against Chelsea.

The Asian Champions will take on their European counterparts for a place in the final of the prestigious competition.


While Chelsea join the competition in the semi-final stage, Al-Hilal defeated United Arab Emirates side Aljazira 5-1 to qualify for the last and Ighalo scored one of the goals.

Speaking ahead of the game, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel said, he’s wary of the Nigerian 32-year-old and his striker partner.

“We know Al Hilal, it’s a team from Saudi Arabia and have won the Asia Cup a lot of times. This is a very good team, we know a lot of players also from Al Hilal,” Low told reporters at his pre-match press conference.

“We know for example, Marega from Porto, we played against Porto two times in the Champions League and he played against us.

“We also know Ighalo, he also played in England with Watford. They have very good quality up front, they can score a lot of goals,” he added.
