Super Eagles star attacker Odion Ighalo has declared that the 2022 FIFA World Cup held in Qatar is one of the best editions he has seen.
Ighalo said the reason is that he was impressed with the performances of many teams and players, particularly Argentine talisman Lionel Messi and the French lethal attacker Kylian Mbappe.
"It was one of the best World Cups I've seen. A lot of teams did well," the Al Hilal said in a discussion with FIFA+.
"Messi did what he wanted to do. Mbappe, a young guy, gave everything but unfortunately couldn't win the World Cup. I was very impressed with Mbappe."
He also showered praises on Morocco for being history makers, adding that his club Al Hilal has drawn inspiration from the Atlas Lions.
"Morocco were amazing. We have taken inspiration from them,"he said.
"If Morocco can do it, of course, Al Hilal can do it too. A lot of teams who have been called underdogs have sprung surprises.
"We know we can achieve the same against big teams at the Club World Cup."
