Watford forward Odion Ighalo admits he is cheerless that Nigeria will not be participating at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Super Eagles missed out of tournament having surrendered the ticket to Egypt in Group G that also paraded Tanzania and Chad.

According to the 27-year-old, the truth of their failure will really hit the country when the championship begins on January 14.

"I felt bad - not just me but Nigerians as a whole are not happy," Ighalo told BBC Sport.

"Seeing teams playing in the Nations Cup and you see yourself at home you know you're not going to the Nations Cup that's when i am going to feel bad."

"You know you don't have to dwell on that, we don't have to kill ourselves about that.

"We have to work towards the next one and keep pushing hopefully we will qualify." (goal.com)
