Odion Ighalo took his tally to 5 goals at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, as he fired Nigeria into a first-half lead in the third placed play-off against Tunisia on Wednesday.

Ighalo punished the Carthage Eagles after the defense failed to clear a Jamilu Collins cross.

 

His fifth goal came in the third minute, but unfortunately, the forward was substituted in additional time after he pulled a hamstring.

 

The team rallied to give the forward support as he cut a frustrated figure walking off the pitch.
