Ighalo just can’t stop scroing, nets 12th goal in China


Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo is on a sensational run of form with his Chinese club Changchun Yatai after getting on the score-sheet for the second consecutive matchday in their 1-1 draw with Shanghai Shenhua yesterday afternoon.

The 29-year-old struck home a left footed shot from the left side of the six yard box to the bottom left corner to pull his side level thanks to a headed assist from teammate, Nemanja Pejcinovic in the 70th minute.

Nigeria manager, Gernot Rohr is expected to hand in his squad list for the team that will execute the very important AFCON Seychelles qualifier next month within the next couple of weeks and the striker is leaving no stone unturned in continuing to prove his qualities.

The former Watford hitman has now scored 12 goals from just 16 starts in the CSL, including four in his last four games and only Shanghai SIPG’s Wu Lei has scored more goals than him this term.

Changchun Yatai have recorded 18 points from their 16 games contested in the division this season.
