Odion Ighalo could again be the striker to stop at the AFCON when he grabbed the winning goal for Al Shabab to beat Al Ahli 4-3 in a thrilling Saudi Arabian league clash on New Year day.

Ighalo, who was top scorer at the 2019 AFCON in Egypt, stayed top of the Saudi topflight goals chart with 11 goals.

The 32-yer-old striker proved to be the difference when he struck in the 73rd minute to make it 4-3 in favour of his club.
