Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo, has lashed out at his team-mates, over their “poor” performance in the 2-0 defeat to Madagascar, in their final Group B match at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Gernot Rohr’s men were humiliated by the island nation, who are making their appearance at the tournament.

A goal in each half of the encounter from Lalaina Nomenjanahary and Carolus Andriamahitsinoro moved to second spot, while Madagascar became the seventh nation to go unbeaten in their first three AFCON since Cape Verde in 2013.

“I think this is a wake-up call for us, today, we played very poorly, we were relaxed and our mentality was not very good.

“Probably it is because we were already qualified but this game has shown us that there is no easy team in this competition.

“We have to go back, regroup and ensure we do well for the next game which is a match with no room for ,” Ighalo told reporters.

The Shanghai Shehua frontman has scored just once in his three appearances so far.
