Former Nigeria international Jude Aneke has lauded Odion Ighalo as the best African striker.


The China-based striker helped Nigeria finish third in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals in Egypt.


Ighalo scooped the Golden Boot accolade having netted five goals in the continental tournament.


However, the 30-year-old player announced his retirement from international football after the competition.


“Ighalo’s decision to retire is best known to him, in anyway Nigeria must move on,” Ighalo told All Nigeria Soccer.


Aneke, who played for Nigeria once, was the Nigeria league top scorer in 2012 with Kaduna United with 20 goals.


“Ighalo is an experienced striker and arguably the best in Africa going by his top scorer award in the AFCON,” he added.


“And the qualifiers before that however we must encourage younger strikers to aspire to be like Ighalo.”
