Ighalo Nets Goal Number 12 In China


Changchun Yatai of China striker, Odion Jude Ighalo on Saturday netted his 12th goal of the season in the Chinese Super League, but his side could only settle for a 1-1 draw with Shanghai Shenhua.

The 29-year-old former Watford of England star 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, after an assist by Nemanja Pejcinovic with a header in the 70th minute.

Though Ighalo struggled for form at the World Cup, he has now scored 12 goals from 16 starts in the CSL, including four in his last four games.

Only Shanghai SIPG’s Wu Lei has scored more goals than Ighalo this term, while his club have recorded 18 points from 16 games in the season.

En route to another highpoint in the Chinese Super League stats, Ighalo hit target for the second consecutive match on Saturday afternoon, with a left footed shot inside the six yard box to the bottom left corner, for his fourth goal in his last four games.

In reaction, Jude Ighalo Fans took to their Twitter handle @judeighalofans to celebrate with the star, writing: “What A Great Performance From @ighalojude.

“Despite playing 3 Games in 6 days, He still Scored a goal and He is Currently The Highest Goal Scorer In The Chinese Super League!!!!!!!!!!! #smallboywithAbiggod #Ighalo.”
