Football: Nigerian player, Odion Ighalo, off the mark for his new team in Saudi Arabia
Nigerian international and former Super Eagles of Nigeria striker, Odion Ighalo is off the mark in Saudi Arabia as the former Manchester United striker scored his first goal for Al-Shabab.
Odion Ighalo scored his first competitive goal in over five months when he scored the last goal today for Al-Shabab as the Saudi team defeats fellow side Al Nassr by four goals to nil.
The former Watford striker quit Manchester United in January after failing to make the squad under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for months after extending his time at Old Trafford last year.
Ighalo came in in the second half in what is his second game for his new team in Saudi Arabia since joining them during last winter transfer break.
“1st of many,” says Odion Ighalo after scoring his first goal for Al-Shabab today in the Saudi Arabia division.
