#ThrowBackThursday: Odion Ighalo Captains Flying Eagles in 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup



After helping Watford in their promotion to the English Premier League, Odion Ighalo will be playing against top class defenders like John Terry and Laurent Koscielny.

Six years ago however, he was captain of the Flying Eagles of Nigeria team to the FIFA U-20 World Cup in  Egypt.

The now Super Eagles striker took to his Instagram to share a photo from that World Cup.

Samsion Siasia was the coach of the Fling Eagles then and he was also in the photo posted by Ighalo.

Captain Ighalo could not lead his team to the finals as they were knocked out by Germany in the second round.

Ighalo has since played for several clubs like Lyn Fotball, Udinese and Granada.
