It looked off to me. Before Iwobi spread the ball to Musa, Ighalo the goalscorer was already in an offside position

LOL. Oga that has nothing to do with it.

Musa was onside, Ighalo was not involved in play then so his position doesn't matter. Ighalo comes into play once Musa gets the ball. At that point he was behind the ball.

Not offside by any measure.

So Musa was onside and passed to Ighalo who was already offside and it's not offside?

Pajimoh, Ighalo was onside though it was a very marginal call. The Libyan defenders tried to play the offside trap, but got exposed once again like they did when Iwobi played that pass to Ighalo in the first leg.

Think he is saying Igalo could only have been offside or interfering with play if he was ahead of Musa once he received the Pass from Musa.

I thought he was but it could be the camera angle. I stopped and played it frame by frame and Ighalo looked off but I could be wrong

Those were my initial thoughts too.

Dude, what are you on about? There is no confusion here, Ighalo was CLEARLY behind Musa at the point Musa kicked the ball. We even have the benefit of a level camera angle.

Obviously I'm seeing things from the clip. Thanks for the clarification

I must say I didn't know about that rule.

So as long as you are behind the onside player (Musa), you are not offside?

Makes sense.

Based on our wrong interpretation of the rule, Ighalo was definitely offside, but it is NOT the right interpretation.

Has to do with where the ball is not where Musa is. As long as Iggy was behind or level with the ball before Musas pass then he’s on.

Nigeria won both games, 7-2 on aggregate, and Ighalo scored 5 goals in 2 games. Yet Nigerian fans complain about the team and call for Ighalo to be dropped.

It is a shame to be honest with you, a damn shame if you ask me...smh. You will also notice how they called for Musa to be dropped in the name of "fresh legs"...Fans sha... :roll:

Guys did you notice that the jerseys had names of the players on it. For a qualifier that was very impressive. Hopefully we keep it up.

Nope. He was called to be dropped because he plays in a junk league. :D

That way you can ensure subs in case of injury.

Never mind that the game could be lost (or won) with that sub...

But in today's game, clearly Etebo was tiring. He should have brought in help much earlier just to release some of the pressure in midfield.

The chance that we would have qualified for the 2nd round of the World Cup, by simply subbing off a tired and beaten Idowu is quite high!

We almost blew this opportunity today, once again due to subs! The result notwithstanding! The man has no excuses.

Nigerians called for Ighalo to be dropped before the games after 3 goals in 25 games and no goals in 10, which included the wc. Maybe Watford should not have sold him for not scoring after scoring so many goals for them previously?

Chief relax, you justify your place in the team by doing what you're supposed to do. Ighalo did not do that for a long time. Now he's doing it. Scoring 590 goals in 2 games cannot change the fact he failed to score in so many games.
If you're pleased with non scoring strikers then we should have left our previous strike who quit the team there.

Nigerians, they behave others opinions are not valid. msshhhewww

If Iwobi had passed to Odion, he would have been offside. Iwobi passed to Musa (a beauty by the way) who cut back to Odion to score. Odion was not offside.

Stop it at 57 seconds. That was why I called it. You could clearly see Ighalo was off before the ball was played. Musa was on. Ighalo never came back on side. The ball was passed to him to score. If the rule allows him to score from there because Iwobi did not initially pass to him, all good. I just wanted clarity
