Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo will hope to wrap up his Africa Cup Of Nations outing with a bronze medal as well as the top scorer gong.

Ighalo has four goals already and he is likely to add more if fielded in today’s losers final at the Al Salam Stadium in Cairo between Nigeria and Tunisia.

 

The forward scored the winning goal in Nigeria’s first Group B game against Burundi and added three more goals in the win against Cameroon and the defeat to Algeria.

 

Liverpool and Senegal forward Sadio Mane, Algeria’s Adams Ounas and Cedric Bakambu of DR Congo have scored three goals each.

 

Mane and Ounas will however rival the former Watford striker for the individual accolade when they go to the battle field in the finals of the AFCON on Friday.
