Nduka Ugbade has downplayed the late arrival of Al-Shabab of Saudi Arabia and returnee Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo after the former Manchester United forward arrived the Nigeria national team training camp in Tangier Morocco on Thursday.

Ighalo arrived the camp late ahead of the two world cup qualifying fixtures on Saturday and Tuesday against Liberia and Cape Verde respectively.

Ugbade speaking in a chat with www.brila.net stressed that Ighalo’s location coming from the middle East and the peculiarity of his involvement having been out of the team before should be considered.

He however added that it is up to the coach to determine Ighalo’s involvement in Saturday’s game against Liberia.
