Ighalo made his debut under the tutelage of Daniel Amokachi in 2015 and later played his first competition with the senior team at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. He received a lot of negative vibes and criticism from football fans during the Eagles 2018 world cup campaign for missed chances and performing below expectations.
